Sudan’s Bashir heading to Central African Republic on Wednesday: report


November 30, 2010 (WASHINGTON) – The Sudanese president Omer Hassan Al-Bashir will fly to Central African Republic (CAR) on Wednesday in defiance of the arrest warrant against him, according to a newspaper report.

The pro-government Al-Rayaam newspaper quoting unnamed sources said that Bashir will join the country’s Golden Jubilee Independence Day celebrations during his quick visit. He will return to Khartoum for a meeting of his party later that evening.

If the visit takes place this would be the third to a country that is a member of the International Criminal Court (ICC) after Kenya and Chad.

Bashir has been indicted by the ICC for war crimes and genocide in Sudan’s Darfur province, a move that has isolated Sudan and confined the movements of the president to visits to friendly countries in the region.

The African Union has instructed its members not to cooperate with ICC in executing the warrant though not all countries have agreed to the directive.

This week the Libyans asked Bashir to stay away from the Africa-EU summit held in Tripoli to avoid a mass walkout by EU members.

The ICC is currently holding trial for Jean-Pierre Bemba described as a Congolese warlord for crimes allegedly committed by his troops in CAR between 2002-2003.

    Dear Bashier,

    What are you going to look for in Central Africa,You corrupted leader of sudan?
    Don’t go and cause trouble to them as what you are doing in Sudan.
    Please be a faithful guy instead of being trouble sum to other countries, not to be like yours.
    If you were a man why don’t you attended the AU-EU submit in Libya.
    Stop going anywhere randomly .
    Do you want to go and equip Konyi whom you have aready name as Mohammed Kony of LRA.
    Stop causing attrasties in neighbouring countries.
    Be like South African leaders who usually accept the voice of their country citizen.
    You are causing trouble in Darfur, Southern Sudan, Chad and other countries.
    Is it because you were swearing of being saying from the throne to the cemetry .
    You will not be a leader forever without death, you will still die and the throne will remain with others.
    Try to list don’t be disobedience

      The defiance doesn’t matter at all to the international society anyway; the criminals are warned not to steal but they do it nonetheless.

      What’s important is, Bashir is never allowed to attend the AU meeting and that preserved the dignity of Africa.

    Oh Mr. President,

    You are so annoying, since when you care about CAR. Please stop causing embarrassment to yourself and to or neighbors and MOST IMPORTANTLY TO US. You are really becoming pathetic and childish and your advisors are fooling you around while they enjoy traveling freely everywhere. Just because Libya rejected you yesterday, you want to reply today by causing another problem to CAR which is a member of ICC, how selfish. You are not welcomed by anybody in the world and you are becoming a really heavy guest to each and every country you go to, so pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease step down. Thanks to you, the Sudan will be torn apart and your people will never ever ever forgive you for that no matter what you do or how hard you try (our history will mark you as a traaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaitor).

      If I were El-bashir, I would have gone to that summit and be arrested so that the rest are in Peace. In another way, the ICC could compromise by forgiving him despite all the havocs he did. A Person is always forgiven if he/she confessed the sins committed, but those deliberately denying are destined to everlasting persecution. By the way, bashir is truly innocent but those advisors are the real devils in disguised. Just because being the Leader he carries all the blames, secondly because of his signing or approving of those dirty reports.Please Bashir..Go for that meeting in CAR..Try to prove to the world that you are innocent..or else you are truly guilty.
