Sudan’s Bashir is still a wanted man by ICC



By Ronald Kabuye
The International Criminal Court ICC says that the former Sudan president Omar Hassan Ahmed Al-Bashir is still a suspect and wanted man over numerous crimes.
Among the crimes Bashir has to answer to include five counts of crimes against humanity, murder, extermination, forcible transfer, torture and rape and various war crimes he allegedly committed between 2003 and 2008 in Darfur Sudan and now the burden lies upon members states to arrest him.
The news comes when Bashir is in prison following a coup instituted against him due to immense riots in sudan.
This has been revealed by the ICC outreach officer for Uganda Maria Mabinty Kamara while briefing the media about the progress of the trial of the former lord’s Resistance Army LRA commander Dominic Ongwen in Hague.
Kamara said 26 witnesses have so far testified in the case including the experts, former LRA fighters, government officials, UPDF officer, witch doctors, local residents and leaders.
4107 victims have participated in the trial through their seven lawyers who are allowed to amplify their voices and the impact of Ongwen atrocities.
Ongwen is charged with 70 counts of crimes against humanity and war crimes allegedly committed after July 2002 in Northern Uganda.
