Al-Bashir to justice now

As expected, earlier today the International Criminal Court (ICC) issued an arrest warrant for Sudanese President, Omar Al-Bashir.  This is the first time in history that a sitting head of state has been indicted.

The first opportunity to arrest [Omar] Al-Bashir will be next week when he is due to travels to Qatar… it remains to be seen what Qatar will do next and of course what the rest of the international community will do…

The spokeswoman for the ICC, Laurence Blairon said

“He is suspected of being criminally responsible … for intentionally directing attacks against an important part of the civilian population of Darfur, Sudan, murdering, exterminating, raping, torturing and forcibly transferring large numbers of civilians, and pillaging their property”

This is a first step towards justice for the innocent victims of this genocide.  Mr. Ocampo, I congratualate you on this momentous achievement.
