Charges of genocide were leveled against Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, accusing him of trying to wipe out African tribes in Darfur with a violent actions and deportation.
The Sudan does recognize the court and feels the charges are politically motivated.
Luis Moreno-Ocampo attempted to get the court to issue a warrant for the apprehension of al-Bashir so that the millions of deaths he planned could not be carried out in Darfur which is still being attacked by the government-backed janjaweed militia.
The terrible killing continues and must be stopped say Moreno-Ocampo. “Seventy-year-old women, 6-year-old girls are raped,” he said.
Moreno-Ocampo was undeterred by concern that his indictment against al-Bashir might ignite a storm of vengeance against Darfur refugees and spur Sudan to shut out relief agencies and possibly peacekeeping troops.
These charges must be persued. No one is above the law and if the evidence shows that these things are going on, justice must prevail. These were the thoughts of Richard Dicker who is the director of the program.
