    ICC Issues Arrest Warrant for Sudanese President

    ICC spokeswoman Laurence Blairon announced the decision Wednesday, saying the warrant against al-Bashir is for charges of crimes against humanity and war crimes.

    "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," she said.

    This is the first warrant the ICC has issued for the arrest of a head of state who is still in power.

    I remember a security guy at an apartment complex wrote me a parking ticket.
    I took it FAR more seriously than a warrant from the ICC.

    yeah they're serving it to the Sudanese authorities, and leaving it up to them to enforce it.

    so...

    they killed a tree for no reason.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    Sudanese president tells international criminal court to 'eat' arrest warrant

    The Sudanese president, Omar al-Bashir, told the international criminal court yesterday to "eat" the arrest warrant it is expected to issue against him today for war crimes committed in Darfur.

    Bashir, who will become the first head of state sought by the permanent court, made a defiant speech in front of thousands of people who burnt an effigy of the ICC chief prosecutor, Luis Moreno-Ocampo, yesterday.

    "They will issue their decision tomorrow ... this coming decision, they can prepare right now: they can eat it [the warrant]," said Bashir at the opening of the Merowe hydroelectric dam in northern Sudan.

    Tension has been rising in Sudan ahead of the announcement. Human rights campaigners say the warrant or summons for Bashir to go on trial in The Hague would send a strong message about ending impunity, and pressure the government to seek a swift and peaceful end to the six-year conflict in Darfur.
