the Court’s Chief Prosecutor said today, as she briefed the 15-member organ on her investigation into alleged crimes in the western Darfur region of Sudan.
“Justice delayed is justice denied,” Chief Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda emphasized, outlining numerous instances of non-compliance by both the Government of Sudan and third-party States. Noting that five arrest warrants remain outstanding for current and former Sudanese officials ‑ including President Omer al-Bashir - she said they contain more than 60 counts of war crimes and 50 counts of crimes against humanity, such as extermination, murder, rape and torture. “The body of evidence is increasing, and my prosecution team continues to prepare in anticipation of the future arrest and surrender of any of the Darfur suspects,” she affirmed.
She noted that since submitting her last one, President Omar al Bashir of Sudan had travelled to a number of countries, some of which were States parties to the Rome Statute and all of which were United Nations Member States.
Weder war es in mehreren Jahren gelungen, den internationalen Haftbefehl gegen Omar al-Bashir (Präsident des Sudan) zu vollziehen, noch konnten im Prozess gegen Uturu Kenyatta wegen Kriegsverbrechen in Kenya in den Jahren 2007-2008 neue Beweismittel erreicht werden, nachdem die bisherigen Zeugen der Anklage in Lebensgefahr gerieten, falls sie weiterhin aussagten.
