International Criminal Court (ICC) Indicts President Umar al-Bashir for Crimes Against Humanity in Darfur

President Omar Hassan al-Bashir of Sudan

President Omar al-Bashir was indicted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) on Monday July 14, 2008, on charges of crimes against humanity.
Sudan alerted the U.N. that the indictment could jeopardize the peace process on the resolution of the Darfur crisis.


The International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague found President Bashir guilty of the murder and rape committed by the Sudanese government troops and their militias against the people of Darfur. The ICC sought for the warrant to arrest President Umar al-Bashir for trial.

dears
it's false about al Bechir's indictment

Ocampo has just said he'll sue him, but it's all about a trick, there's no way to indict Sudan's president with genocide, mainly because what has happenen in Darfur doesn't match with gencide's definition in the law

most, Ocampo is shaken by a scandal and over criticised, s it's probably that's playing a fake card to keep his office

cheers

What the Darfurians need is for activists and awake citizens of the united states to boycott all Chinese made goods until china stops all trades and oil development in Sudan. We have to demand change through denial of the dollar. We don't have time to continue to speak to the wind. The denial of income is the only way short of military intervention to stop this genocide. so I ask for all my brothers and sisters who believe in the sacredness of life and who believe that we are all gods children to push for a citizen, activist, alternative media, message to not spend your money on any thing chinese manufactured.

We must act Now!
