ICC judges endorse genocide charges against Sudanese president

July 12, 2010 (WASHINGTON) — The judges at the International Criminal Court (ICC) today added three counts of genocide to the arrest warrant issued last year for Sudanese president Omer Hassan Al-Bashir just as he was en-route to Khartoum from Asmara after making a previously unannounced visit.

Over a year ago the Pre-Trial chamber I charged Bashir with seven counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity but declined to approve the remaining three counts of genocide requested by the prosecutor.

However, the ICC prosecutor Luis More-Ocampo filed an appeal afterward saying that the judges used incorrect standard of proof to reject the genocide counts.

Last February, the judges at the appeals chamber concurred with the prosecutor and remanded the case back to the Pre-Trial chamber I to review the genocide case anew.

The judges in their 30-page document stressed that the present decision "only amends the First Decision to the extent necessary to implement the Appeals Decision and neither a re-assessment of the materials originally supporting the Prosecution’s Application, nor the analysis of materials other than those are warranted".

"There are reasonable grounds to believe that [Omar al-Bashir] acted with specific intent to destroy in part the Fur, Masaalit and Zaghawa ethnic groups" the judges said.

"Towns and villages inhabited by other tribes, as well as rebel locations, were bypassed in order to attack towns and villages known to be inhabited by civilians belonging to the Fur, Masaalit and Zaghawa ethnic groups."

It also appeared likely that "acts of rape, torture and forcible displacement were committed against members of the targeted ethnic groups," said the court.

The prosecutor had presented evidence of government forces contaminating the wells and water pumps of villages inhabited by these groups, who were also subject to forcible transfer "in furtherance of the genocidal policy", said the court.

This is the first time the ICC makes a finding of genocide against a suspect. The counts added today include genocide by killing, genocide by causing serious bodily or mental harm and genocide by deliberately inflicting on each target group conditions of life calculated to bring about the group’s physical destruction.

Sudan has rejected the jurisdiction of the ICC and halted cooperation with the Hague Tribunal since 2007 saying the UN Security Council (UNSC) resolution referring of the Darfur case to the ICC was legally flawed because it is not a signatory to the Rome Statute.

The ICC issued has outstanding warrants also for Ahmed Haroun who was the state minister for humanitarian affairs at the time and is now the governor of South Kordofan and militia commander Ali Mohamed Ali Abdel-Rahman, also known as Ali Kushayb.

Three other suspects appeared voluntarily from the Darfur rebels including leader of the United Resistance Front (URF) Bahr Idriss Abu Garda, former Chief of Staff of Sudan Liberation Army (SLA-Unity) Saleh Mohammed Jerbo Jamus and Abdallah Banda Abakaer Nourain described as the Commander-in-Chief of Justice and Equality Movement (JEM Collective-Leadership).

Abu Garda was cleared of the charges later while the other two will appear at a hearing later this year to determine whether there is enough evidence to try them.

The judges today rejected a previous request submitted by two pro-Sudan, the Sudan Workers Trade Unions Federation (SWTUF) and the Sudan International Defense Group (SIDG) to submit observations against adding the counts of genocide.

They also declined a request made last February by the prosecutor to convene a closed hearing in order to file additional evidence with regard to genocide.

Abdel-Mahmood Abdel-Haleem, Sudan’s ambassador to the United Nations, called the new arrest warrant a "malignant and desperate attempt" to destabilize the country.

"We condemn this move in strongest terms and we are confident that the Sudanese people and all peace-loving nations will ensure the demise of this criminal institution," Abdel-Haleem said in a statement.

In Khartoum, senior National Congress Party official Rabie Abdulatti called the charge ridiculous.

"This is not a charge against the president. It is against the sovereignty and independence of our country," he told Reuters.

"We think that such an action is designed to serve the agenda of others. Sudan faces hostility from different countries."

The Sudanese president returned home today after making a short and previously unannounced visit to Eritrea. The latter was also his first stop when the first arrest warrant was issued for him in March 2009.

He has maintained his ability to travel but avoided countries which are members of the court with a legal obligation to apprehend him.

Al-Bashir has ruled Sudan since coming to power in a military coup in 1989 and won election last April in the country’s first multiparty vote in 24 years which were marred by boycotts and accusations of widespread fraud and rigging.

REBELS & INT’L REACTION

The Darfur rebel groups hailed were quick today’s decision against the Sudanese president describing it as a victory for the people of Darfur.

"This is a golden opportunity for the international community to show the resolve to end the gravest crime humanity has ever known committed against our people in Darfur" said Abdel-Wahid Al-Nur leader of Sudan Liberation Movement (SLM) to Sudan Tribune.

"Never again was the promise the world made that they will not have a genocide like Rwanda happen under their watch. The world must not politicize justice and support the ICC in order to deter any potential criminals in any part of the world" Al-Nur added.

The Justice and Equality Movement rebel group called the development "a victory for the people of Darfur, the war victims who anxiously awaited this ruling.....[victory] to international justice and peace loving countries who oppose impunity"

"JEM calls upon the international community to fulfill its obligations to stop the ongoing genocide in Darfur, in accordance with the Genocide Convention of 1948, and call on it to take measures to implement the arrest warrants against the accused Omer Al-Bashir," spokesman Ahmed Hussein said in a statement.

In Washington, U.S. State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley urged al-Bashir to submit himself to the ICC to face the genocide charges.

"We believe that he should present himself to the ICC and answer the charges that have been leveled against him," Crowley said.

"Everyone is entitled to a day in court, and we think the sooner that President Bashir presents himself to that court, the better," he said.

The US special envoy on Sudan, Scott Gration, will visit the region next week and renew his call for Bashir to "cooperate fully" with the court in The Hague, Crowley said.

In New, the York UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon was "deeply concerned by the nature of charges against president Bashir", spokesman Farhan Haq told a press briefing in New York.

Ban urged the Khartoum government "to provide its full support to the work of the ICC and address issues of justice and reconciliation," he said.

The New York based Human Rights Watch (HRW) called on the international community to press Sudan to cooperate with the ICC.

"President al-Bashir’s stonewalling on the initial ICC warrant against him appears only more outrageous now that he’s also being sought for genocide," said Elise Keppler, senior counsel with the International Justice Program at Human Rights Watch.

"Security Council members and other concerned governments should actively press Sudan to stop its blatant obstruction of the ICC and to see to it that al-Bashir appears at the court" she said.

Four U.S. based human rights advocacy organizations - the Enough Project at the Center for American Progress, Genocide Intervention Network, the Save Darfur Coalition, and the American Jewish World Service issued a joint statement lauding the genocide charge and calling on Obama to ensure his arrest.

"The Government of Sudan should immediately turn over President al-Bashir to face trial in The Hague. Barring this unlikely cooperation, the United States and the international community should work together to ensure Bashir’s swift arrest" the statement read.

“Accountability is a fundamental component of sustainable peace in Sudan,” says John Prendergast, Co-Founder of the Enough Project. “President Obama should make abundantly clear his unequivocal support for peace rooted in justice in Sudan by sending the message that consequences will result from any retaliation against Sudanese civilians as a result of this warrant, and by building stronger international support for this warrant.”

“The American people are expecting President Obama to fulfill his campaign promises and forcefully support the ICC and protect civilians in Sudan,” says Mark Hanis, President of the Genocide Intervention Network. “The United States government should reaffirm its support for the ICC’s pursuit of justice in Darfur and should work together with UN Security Council and ICC member states to ensure the swift enforcement of this and all ICC arrest warrants for those accused of atrocities in Darfur, including al-Bashir.”

“The United States and broader international community must vigilantly monitor for any threats or acts of violence or other repression against civilians, Sudanese human rights activists, aid workers or peacekeepers,” says Mark Lotwis, Acting President of the Save Darfur Coalition. “While pushing for al-Bashir’s apprehension, the Obama administration must lead efforts to prevent a repeat of the merciless and cruel retaliation by the Khartoum regime last year.”

Lotwis was referring to Bashir’s decision to expel more than a dozen aid groups from Darfur following the issuance of the arrest warrant for him.

’PROPER STEP FORWARD’

David Crane, the former chief prosecutor at the Special Court for Sierra Leone who indicted ex-Liberian leader Charles Taylor, called the decision a "proper step forward" that completes prosecutors’ picture of atrocities in Darfur.

"It is an odd presentation if the genocide was not allowed to go forward," said Crane, who is now a law professor at Syracuse University. "They would almost have to dance around the obvious. Now we have a complete indictment that captures all the offenses that have taken place."

Crane, who had to wait two years from the time he unsealed an indictment against Taylor to his arrest agreed with ICC’s prosecutor’s assessment that Bashir will face justice sooner or later.

"It is a matter of time and frankly I think President Bashir knows it’s a matter of time," Crane said. "He will be handed over. It is just a matter of when that political decision is made."

      Readers,

      "It is a matter of time and frankly I think President Bashir knows it’s a matter of time," David Crane said. "He will be handed over. It is just a matter of when that political decision is made."

      Can anybody compete with established international legal system against committing war crimes? Will Khartoum certainly understand on that day the difference between......and .......? Don’t fill in the blank yet because there is nothing done in South Sudan and Darfur as well?

      Arab and African countries are exempted according to Khartoum and its Public Relation Clubs (PRCs), AU and AL. Arab and African leaders have every right to butcher the governed at their disposal. Arab country would not recognize this ICC because of the omitted word "Islamic". What about AU? Only targeting African leaders? Perhaps a mistake has been made to indite Milosevic (in Europe) and Taylor (in Africa)? Why claim to be people of God and kill fellow Muslims and Christians for their basic human rights alike in the name of God? Where is justice here?

      So the few Arab and African countries who are members of the ICC should consider withdrawing their memberships or face suicide bombings according to Khartoum who demands Sudan’s name removed from the terrorist list. Where is the logic of the justification? Wait a minute...

      Omar must report himself to the International Criminal Court(ICC )to proof his innocence if he though that he is innocent as he always talk of it, why does he shout in Khartoum preaching that, he is innocent and he doesn’t want to proof it before the competent court of law which is there to deal with such a thing, the man is joking he view the world like Khartoum and Oduman he is not informed about how the world is tough on arrogant person and military minded.

      He must go whether he like or not, no body who is a son of law and friend of law , but someone who respect the law is the one who is friend and son of law , but criminal is an enemy of law.

      It is not only Bashier from the north who will go there alone , there are some people here in the south who shall go after Omar , Human Right Base is watching them properly but they don’t know, they are committing massacre some here in the south but they pretend , but world know what they are doing . please adjust yourselves before the UN and the Human Right could call you, if you don’t know, you are moving in the trap of UN security Council . They are now killing innocent civilians raping them and looting their properties and kill them instead of such for the targeting one.

      But if you tress this, you are in problem.

      I think the ICC is not only crazy I think SPLA buy them with money and they truly work like parteners and can make up their mind at any time. I think the President of Sudan has to deal with it. In fact, if it was not because ICC are parteners to SPLA, these are not the only crimes going on in Sudan but the ICC seemed only interested in that case only.
      Anyway, we will see.

      ICC don’t have neither medical journalist proven nor physical, they just unlawfully believe what had been reported to them by their accuser which will later disprove their premature made decision.
      I understand the ICC don’t time to collect a true evidents about their negatively published premature decision using the wrong term genocide against Sudan, but want to continue with such confusing issue from here, I appeal ICC decision that
      If Darfure case need further investigation, please can the ICC make sure you publish an acute work with better understanding of use of the term genocide follow by making your decision, but making confusion internationally is big disaster and big mistake.
      Have good day!

    Well, well, well, I think Mr. Bashir has two minutes to surrender.Two tablets of tynol and a cup of coffee will not relieve that headache. Sir, you need to appear before the ICC and defend yourself if you think you have not done anything. But remember, you said last time that it was an honour for the women and children of Darfur to be raped by your janjaweeds. You got to explain this statement to the court. Justice must prevail.

      Baseless Claim charges, the International Criminal Court should either quoted it restriction from soughing against Bashir with it more fear,
      Bashir grievances with the people of Sudan did reflect it leadership though he was relected last April poll, I was a fear from of Sudanese people in Khartoum that if they did not vote for Bashir then the 1990 coupe which brought Omer to power will be his patriot.
      Now ICC chief Marino Ocampo is always speaking out things which he do not implement them, the arrest of Bashir would been delayed until 2010.
      The arresting of Bashir should not be viewed as a crisis to the people of Sudan and indeed to Africa Continent but this is an opportunity to consolidate with peace justice and stability in our Country.
      Removing of Omer el Bashir does not mean the end of Sudan , we still having good Arabs leaders who can still lead Sudan if Arabs are only the leaders for Suda.

        will it happen this time or just hang over him like the previous arrest warrant?

        this has become an endless song which is sang by the conductor but no choir to respond.Taking Bashir to the court will not give change to Sudan alone, but will freighten the other dictator presidents of Africa and elsewhere around the world.

    The elected president`s world is getting narrow, and his time is getting shorter as the day of justice is approaching him.
    Look at you African leaders, Only you the corrupted African leaders are still cooperating with the suspect. let the corrupted leaders our of South Sudan learn from this example, because there are some wrongs element among our people in South Sudan(especially in SPLA) who are abusing their power by torturing, stealing public fund & arresting people illegally.soon you will face justice as just after referendum is done, what you are doing is filed down. you will be brought to justice to be tried.
    we are praying that let the ICC implement after the refendum, when we are in our own independent state( RSS or DRSS)That is The Republic/Democratic Republic of South Sudan

      This is truly a breathtaking welcomed news. This genocide-denying, bloodthirsty and self-proclaimed president of Sudan has time and time again denied having committed these serious human atrocities in greater Darfure. Indeed, since more serious charges are now emerging the best thing Bashir can do is to get the fuck out of the office and face those serious charges in manly fashion.
      The marginalized, of the marginalized people of Sudan who have borne the brute of this man’s misguided, misplaced and genocidal policy for last twenty-one years thank the savvy and brilliant ICC judges for endorsing genocide charges against this brutal and fatalistic president of So-called Sudan.

        It must be recalled that president Omer Hamed Hassan El Beshir who has ruled the country since 1989, was twelve years ago dragged, screaming and protesting to the altar of multiparty democracy when Khartoum was bombed in 1998, economic and travel sanctions, Darfur and the International Criminal Court (ICC) not forgetting the referendum for the South by Donor Nations, however it will turn into tribalism, “it will never work in Africa” he protested.
        Nevertheless, a multiparty of sorts was established and he is now serving another term of his dictatorial regime. Yet, while the president may proudly now point his foreign critics to the mushrooming of the local print media, critical of himself and his government as a sign of opened society with democracy worthy of note, he may at the same time be wondering just what it is he has let loose. Issues which not so long ago used to be discussed behind closed doors are now being debated openly on media and can no longer be ignored nor wished away with the same waves of a hand when the public demand redress. The media will not let go. Top among these issues is the widespread crippling corruption and repeated accusations of the involvement of people in high places as well as accusation of government Officials. All these seem to have found expression in the on-going country-wide strikes by teachers, students, civil servants and worst of it all the disabled groups and the army. The teachers strikes is the result of salary agreement to which the government of National Unity committed itself just during the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) implementation on things like the by-elections which it now can’t honored like during the signing of the Bills regarding Laws and many other Bills which need amendment, because the Sudan economy can’t afford it, but the teachers, civil servants and the army counter this by asserting that the economy is not in dire straits, because of their salaries, but because of official corruption and mismanagement of donor’s funds and they would have called for their thousands members to down tools until the government honors the issues pertaining salaries. It is devastating, but “that is their democratic right” the oppositions also sees it as their democratic right on the other hand to remove Beshir by elections(denied by riggings), crimes against humanity and any constitutional means. Darfurians, one of the African’s ethnic communities were rightly outraged, six years with democracy of the mouths, they don’t have democracy, no freedom, no human right and they are still treated as slaves and humiliated, and raped every day. Darfurians and Southern Sudanese are ticking bombs, and unless they are transformed or Beshir will see an explosion of anger which will take people back to war, that looks like Sunday school picnic.
        The same reports pointed out that “over the last 4-5 years in Darfur over 800,000 to 100,000 Darfurians have been killed, maimed and tortured by the SAF’s main agents the Janjaweeds and the army themselves by describing them as rebels, but we thinks there is more to it then meet the eyes. It would, therefore appears as if Sudan have learned little, if any constructive lesson from Darfur. Furthermore, while racial tensions between the Arabs and the African may until African Blacks against the Arabs, issues arising from the ethnic diversity among us Africans may remain dormant for now, but are likely to arise as a destabilizing factor in due time if not handled with care.
        Looking back now, it has not always been true that “all African leaders want to do is hang on to power” as is often repeated by western media. At least four African leaders, namely: Senghor of Senegal, Nyerere of Tanzania, Masire of Botswana and Mandela of South Africa are renowned for surrendering powers willingly. They were torch-bearers for the less power-hungry African leadership which the continent yearns for.
        So, what is wrong with Beshir, not to be like these four guys if he is infect clean, otherwise if he goes to this Summit in Uganda, let him not come back till his case is finalized by Mr., Ocampo.

    The lives of those who had been killed by Bashir regime will not come back and move physically in front of people in Sudan, but their rights and rules of human rights will not dies. So, thank you ICC for recalling Bashir again to go and stand on trial. Bashir has not made genocide to Darfur only, but also all sides of Sudan, i.e in Eastern Sudan, Sothern Sudan and western Sudan. In North-east Sudan, Bashir regime targeting a group of Non-Arab areas of: Beni Amer, Amarar, Bischarin and Hadendoa. (ie collective of these group is called BEJA)
    In the central and Eastern Sudan Bashir regime targeted Black ethnic group areas of: Kaduli, Katla, Koalib, Krongo, Nyima, Tagoi, Temeini, Anag, Barabra, birked, Danagla, Diliing, Mahas and midobi.
    In the central and South Sudan, Bashir regime targeted Black ethic group areas of: Acholi, Anuak, AZande, Baka, Bonda, Bari, Berta (Schankalla), Bongo, Dinka, Koma, longo, Lotuko, luo, Madi, Ndgo, Nuer and shilluk.
    In west Sudan Bashir regime target black ethnic group areas of: Dago, Fur, Maba, Massaleit, Tama and Zaghawa.
    These groups of people are the really groups Bashir regime is targeting as a result of genocide. So where are you world community? Help these people from the hand of Bashir regime.
    Each and everyone including those Non Arabs group listed above in Sudan will be freed and happy when Bashir regime is out from the power and also see Bashir in the hand of ICC.
    Sudan will not be or never ever be stopped problem unless Bashir regime out from the power.

The prosecutor had presented evidence of government forces contaminating the wells and water pumps of villages inhabited by these groups, who were also subject to forcible transfer "in furtherance of the genocidal policy", said the court.

    This is the first time the ICC makes a finding of genocide against a suspect. The counts added today include genocide by killing, genocide by causing serious bodily or mental harm and genocide by deliberately inflicting on each target group conditions of life calculated to bring about the group’s physical destruction.

    All the finding of genocide above happened in Truelly African Darfuian were also done in Southern Sudan during war and i do no know that time no body reporting like now, there was no Human Right Watch Dog that time who do that to South Sudan before like they are doing to Darfur now, any way the blood of Black African killed around the whole Sudan will kill also the one who sheded.

        Friends,

        It is Bashir’s harvest time to taste the ugly fruit of his hard work he had done to marginalized people for two decades. Human lives lost in his hands are searching for the truth to be informed of why they died. Their departure was a well done job by manipulators, but in heaven, however, there is no exception to let such million lives come home like that with no quiry. There was no call in heaven made and so is the case they are bouncing back searching for a sender and killer before the court date in heaven, before God to explain his inconsiderable acts. The crimes against nature and against God will not rest in Bashir’s circle searching the truth.

        His humangod will regret the decision. Bashir will face double punishments and surely he is near it. One punishment is of the pyschological physical abuse he did cause to deads and the living ones. It is the crime he is charged with in the court of law with full pay back. Second is a crime he has committed against majesty God, the creator of lives as he has broken the law of nature: Love your neighbors as yourself has the opposite take for him. He put forth his own law against God by hating his neighbors instead of loving them. So, he will definitely face inevitable punishment in the everlasting fire as a result of his Satani’s activities. You hang Hilter and give us freedom!

        Let him go to hell, who cares about him anyway. Sadem Hussein was hanged and nothing changed then. It is now time for him and the rope on his neck.

    Whether they are hundred or thousands, President Bashir will not surrender himself to International criminal court to be trial abroad.
    Accumulation of those crimes is no longer sensible other people of Darfur will keep dying and no one will keep them. So, avoid issuing an arrest warranty without other implementation of it premises.
