March 15, 2009 (KHARTOUM) — Sudan said it is undertaking extraordinary measures for president Omer Hassan Al-Bashir’s trip to the Arab Gulf state of Qatar later this month as France voiced support to any attempt to apprehend the Sudanese leader.

Sudan has confirmed yesterday that Al-Bashir will attend the Arab League annual summit and the Arab Latin summit that will be held in Doha on March 30th.

One of Bashir’s advisers Abdallah Massar told the London based Al-Sharq Al-Awsat that it is likely that the government “will have special arrangements” in place for the flight.

Massar said that having Sudanese fighter jets accompany the presidential plane “is something to be determined by concerned agencies in the government”.

But another security official speaking to Al-Sharq Al-Awsat on condition of anonymity confirmed that military fighters will guard Bashir’s flight in Sudanese airspace.

The official also said that there may be “camouflage” tactics deployed “in light of threats by rebels to shoot down the plane” before expressing doubt about the ability of them to do so.

“We can say that we will not have the slightest trouble in flying the president safely to Qatar god willing to attend the Arab summit” he added.

If Bashir travels to Qatar it will be his first foreign trip since the ICC issued an arrest warrant for him last week on seven counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity, which include murder, rape and torture.

The ICC prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo said last week that Bashir risks apprehension once he leaves Sudan.

The ICC spokeswoman Laurence Blairon in an interview with Agence France Presse (AFP) yesterday urged Qatar to cooperate with the court in apprehending Bashir.

“The court counts on the cooperation of states and therefore of Qatar, but it does not have its own police force,” she said.

“Qatar is not a state member of the Rome Statute, the founding text of the ICC, but it is a member of the United Nations” Blairon added.

The Sudanese state minister for foreign affairs Al-Samani Al-Wasila downplayed chances of attempts to apprehend Bashir.

“They will not be able to do anything because intercepting a plane is a criminal act of piracy punishable by law unless they decide to down the plane” Al-Wasila said.

But Eric Chevallier, spokesman of the French foreign said that Paris “strongly” supports any operation aimed at arresting the Sudanese president.

“France as many other countries are members of the Rome Statute. There are clear obligations on executing arrest warrant for Bashir” Chevallier told Al-Sharq Al-Awsat in an interview.

The French official said that the majority of the European Union (EU) countries “are pushing towards having ICC members and non-members to assist the court in executing the arrest warrant for Sudanese president especially if he flies to Qatar”.

France has military bases in the African state of Djibouti and Arab Gulf State of United Arab Emirates (UAE). It remains to be seen whether Paris will utilize its air force to bring Bashir’s plane down en route to Qatar.

In December 2006 the ICC arranged an operation along with a number of countries including a neighbor of Sudan to divert a plan carrying Sudanese state minister for humanitarian affairs Ahmed Haroun who wanted to perform the annual Islamic pilgrimage on a forged passport.

Saudi Arabia was notified of the plan, the ICC prosecutor told Sudan Tribune at the time. Khartoum said it was “infuriated” that some countries were willing to take part in the operation.

Haroun, who is also wanted by the ICC, ended up cancelling his travel plans thwarting the plot to nab him.

The Sudanese security official said that it is “unlikely” that Bashir’s plane will be prevented from landing in Doha international airport.

“This is not possible and will not happen. We have our own arrangements but will not talk about it in international media” he said. Furthermore he said that the time of Bashir’s flight will not be made public.

Sudan rejects the jurisdiction of the ICC saying it has not ratified its founding Rome Statute treaty. The UN Security Council (UNSC) invoked its power under the Statute to refer Darfur case to the Hague-based court despite Sudan not being an ICC member.

      Wow,

      Mr. President Al-Bashir, can’t you see how very expensive it is to keep you as leader and protect you from the ICC? Has the ICC which you proudly said was under your shoes become such a big recognizable threat to you? Now you want to divert the money meant for development to protect your personal life, and for how long? Is this to go on until you die? Please, you are becoming a big liability to the people of Sudan. Just face it, step down and let somebody else take over to continue with implementation of peace agreements signed in the country. Try your luck as an ordinary citizen dodging the ICC in your remotest village!

        thanks Gatwech,Bashir is now wanting to turn the public budget to his life protection.like what happen now in southern sudan they spent two months with out salaries.i asked myself how do GOSS leaders thinking to have employees without salaries for two months? is the arrest warrant for Bashir is a big thing that can let the children of southern sudan to die for two months without food to eat? Bashir make sudan to be his own home due to the weakness of GOSS leaders.please Bashir the other world is looking for you,the blood of southerners you kill is crying for you eventhough the live southerners forget their dead brothers and trying to support you.face it.

      For the sake of Dignity, I think President Beshir wouldn’t want to surrender him self voluntarily to the ICC. He has already accepted the indictment otherwise he shouldn’t risk traveling to Qatar for that Arab submit. Qatar will have no option but to deliver him over to the ICC whatever the circumstances might be whether being a member of Rome Statute or not for the safety of her country

    Do these people like Bashir? This is the violation of the international law. I don’t think that the Khartoum government is powerful than ICC. For this violation, I personally understand that the Khartoum regime is unlawful government in the face of the earth. The world leaders who had been indicted by ICC had not even used blackmail against the ICC. If the ICC actually put arrest warrant against Bashir, thus I don’t believe this rhetoric is real. The problems of ICC is not like the problem of Southern Sudan of which Bashir has cut the southern Sudan budgets and no response. The ICC will stick its hand in Bashir’s mother ass anytime. This is not for joke. Let Bashir find a way to escape from instead of allowing people to spy the ICC case. These air crafts are just nothing to the ICC because the ICC has most sophisticated air crafts than Khartoum. These air crafts are just from developed countries. So they might be restricted in the air by the usage of remote. No government in Sudan can defeat the ICC. Please! Stop joking in Khartoum. Leave Bashir alone to decide what to do before the ICC has shortened its days against him who is the most wanted man in the world.

    God is the controller of everything in Air, water and everywhere.
    If God of justice is there, then 3 jets will do nothing. And to Bashir just surrender yourself so that Sudan doesn’t loss lives because you as individual.
    You must go to the court and clean yourself that you are not criminal.
    And to my fellow Sudanese who flight for the crime that you have committed, I may say you know nothing about yourselves as Sudanese.
    It’s between ICC and Bashir Not with all Sudanese.

    FRANCE SUPPORTs AERIAL PIRACY!!!

    It is impossible!!!.

    A genuine chapter in Geneva Convention included Aerial piracy signed and sponsored by:

    1)United Nationals Security Counsel and General Assembly

    2)The Int’l Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO)

    3)The Int’l Air Transpiration Association (IATA)

    4)The Int’l Federation of Air Pilots Association (IFALP)

    All the above respectable organizations have been signed and sponsored by:

    1) UN

    2) USA

    3) UK

    4) France

    5) Russia

    6) China

    We don’t think the up-mentioned sponsors will try to violate what they have signed and sponsored or otherwise Geneva Convention will become null and of no effect and the world has to prepare for justified uncontrollable acts of chaos

      Hey Mr. Tayeb M. Alhassan. I think you don’t know what you are talking about. You can not compare a criminal case with the signed chapter of Aerial piracy. Bringing this son of a thief’s plane down by France will never and ever violate the genuine chapter in Geneva Convention you are barking of. This is a most wanted man like his friend Osama Bin Laden. The fact is if he make any mistake of leaving Sudan, that marks his end of being your president (Count me out).

    Now, ICC has got the greatest militia that’s "Fear" Fear will finish off unfinished job by bringing down NIF boys very soon.

        Mr. Watchable,

        Challenging or insulting Jeff, on the other hand, would not make him to surrender. You speak too loud to Jeff and I believe it would not convince him. I advise you to use polite and constructive language that will make Jeff understand your point. I hope you go to school and you have learned how to convince people who do not understand things quickly. For example if you represent Sudan, do you think you can talk to people who oppose your country in such manner? This is the fairy tale I have never seen in my life. You need to learn how to answer and convince people. I expect that this website is a place for those who know how to play politic. Aggressive answers would not make people believe you. Try to change your unbelievable attitudes.

    Westerners are using the crisis in Darfuur region to destablize Sudan! they are not doing what they are doing now for sake of Darfuuri people but to serve their hiden agendas in Sudan one which is the fragmentation into mini states that they will be able rob later on!!

    In a way, they are doing this as a favour to the Chadi government which is run by France, one of the axes of evill countries which need to be uprooted from African in God’s will!!

    Why the so-called ICC club is attempting to arrest El-basheir right now when the country at peace or trying to resolve her differences ? where were the ICC and her insincere western countries during the time when were killing ourselves as Mr. El-basheir asked them?? why are they bitter right now than ever before in the story of the civil wars in Sudan?? oil, isn’t? Western countries don’t care about the human lives in Africa but the resources,which make their decision to capture El-basheir look very funy and double standard indeed as well!!!

    Sudanese people!!! let us put our differences behind us, and try concentrate our efforts on this war that is being brought to us by the evill west that wants rob us of our independence and resources, let us put our country, Sudan first! humilation of our head of the state is the humilation of any of us regardless !! Let all the Sudanese people say with one voice : No to re-colonization of our Sudan( see Iraq), No for slavery!!

      Dear Kuanlualthoun,

      You call others cowards because they, in your statement,

      “always resort to the air battle where they use missile defense to pave the way for their ground troops that always hide behind heavy amours”?

      So, what do you call Al-Bashir’s tactics against the SPLM/A and agaist the civilians in Southern Sudan for almost a quarter of a century? Al-Bashir did not only attacked enemy combatants in his war agaist SPLM, but also innocent civilians, schools, churches, and farms.
      According to your definition, wouldn’t you call the Sudanese Armed Forces cowards for using air strikes and disproportionate force against rebels and civilians in Darfur region today? Or would filp-flop and say that was a "Bravery"?

      Let’s set records striaght: The successive Sudanese regimes have been one of the most coward regimes of all times. Because they built a mighty army against their own people (children and women).
      History is a witness: Sudan has never been in a constant state war against its own people (the People whom it’s obligated to protect). Unlike other nations, Sudan always backs down in front of any foreign military threats against its sovernity and territorial control. A few examples in this respect are:

      1. The undisputable Hallayb incident with Egypt in early nineties in which Sudan chose to let go of its legitimate territory, people, and resources simply because Sudanese Armed Forces was not built to fight outsiders. It was built to crush the children and women of Sudanese National.

      2. Chad is the second example. Sudanese government has repeatedly blamed Darfur crisis on Chad’s involvement in Dafur especially its so called provision of safe-haven to Darfuri Rebels. Despite of all these high tensions between these two coutries over these issues, military solution has never been an option. They always resort to normalization of relation in one month which only sours in the following.

      3. Numerous conflicts with other neighbors such as Ethiopia, Eritrea, and Uganda have all reached peaceful agreements.

      Shame on a country that used the nations resources and people’s taxes against the very people that it was established to protect. That why the Darfirians are now being protected by foreigners (UN, ICC, and other International Hamm Rights Agencies.)
      Thanks to Dr. Garang: The Southern Sudanese people are now being protected by the mighty force of SPLA!

        Mr. Ring, Ring!!

        I am a Sudanese from Southern town of Kuanlualthoun or the so-called Nasir in Arab!!! there is dispute or arguement about the fact that Sudanese Armed forces committed against the people our people in Southern Sudan or in Darfur region, which is unacceptable of course, but what I trying to say is that we, the Sudanese people chose to forgive these atrocities and massacres here and there through dialogue hence the CPA!!! Many countries in the world including USA and Britian had had civil wars, but that didn’t prevent them to put their differences behind them and move on to open a new chapter!! Where were the ICC and the UN when National Islamic Front and the Sudan Armed Forces were killing millions of innocent women and kids in Southern Sudan?? Why they are reacting with only 300,000 dead in Darfur and not with 2 million dead in the Southern Sudan??? no, there is something missing here!!!

        Anyway, I believe they are directly trying to help the Chadi government and the Darfuri people, if they want to justice why are they not starting it with Mr. Bush who killed the entire nation of Iraq falsely, when he lie to the world that Iraq is manifacturing weapons of mass distruction(WMD)why are they not taking Israeli president to the court in Den Haag and he is killing innocent or helpless palistinian kids and women if they do really want a peaceful world?? why EU and NATO quickly united against one country out side their box?? I don’t just like the double standard of the west against the people of the third world countries!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        I question the sincerity and the legitimatecy of their so-called ICC, UN and their imported christianity that helped them to set foot in the African soil, I believe they want to arrest El-basheir to loot our resources!! they regret because they helped us with the CPA that is why they Killed Dr. John Garang hopping that we will go back to the civil war and retard the development in country!! When Kiir and southerners thought wisely, then they have no other option only to use the Darfur situation to acheive their hiden agendas!! shame on them, the westerners and their supporters!!

          Dear Mr. Kuanlualthoun,

          So, you are a Southern Sudanese? Believe me, when I first read your message, and based on its contents, I thought you were Al-Bashir’s inner circles or a straw men. But thank God you are not. I assume as Southern Sudanese, you might have witnessed some of Al-Bashir’s injustices directly or indirectly.

          Let highlight these points:

          1. You may have a point in questioning the hidden motive behind the ICC move. However, be mindful that Al-bashir do not represent you or me. He was elected by northern Sudanese given the fact that Southern Sudan was excluded from participating in latest Sudanese National lection. Therefore, the notion that Al-Bashir symbolizes the dignity of Sudan and Sudanese people is BS! From where I sit, nothing is more foreign to Sudanese people than the appalling behavior of Al-Bashir towards Sudanese people just like you and me.

          2. You also cited the American experience as an ideal success story of tolerance that we could look up to and adopt for Sudan. My countryman: for as long as the so called Sudanese Arabs remain in power in Sudan, there will be no social harmony, respect to diversity and peace in Sudan. This is not to blame Al-Bashir and other successive regimes. The problem is not in them. The problem is embroiled in the fabric of the so Arab culture of disrespect to diversity ….this is a culture that was passed down since primitive Arab society. If you have any doubt, then could you name one single Arab country that respects diversity? (religious, ethnic, or cultural diversity). Think about it…..If you are disillusioned to believe that Sudan would be the first Arab country to respect diversity, think again!

          3. Finally, I do appreciate your nationalism spirit…your Pan-African spirit is even more worth of my respect. However, opposing the ICC is not the way to go. A Southern Sudanese person like you and me who remembers Al Bashir’s deeds should not oppose the ICC. Let’s have only one enemy at the time. A reasonable person should stand in opposition of both warring parties, specially if your bitter enemy is involved. Al-Bashir is the man who sought our destruction for almost a quarter of a century. Remember the souls of 2 million innocent women and children who were deprived from living and robbed from seeing their children’s future simply there African.

          Remember a whole generation of illiterate who could not read and write, leave along using a computer like you and me can, or like their counter parts in the north could. Let’s forgive, but NOT forget. You seem to have forgiven AND forgotten, my friend.

Who can forget the atrocities and nightmares our people in Southern Sudan passed through?? who didn’t lose a loved-one in the civil war? What I am simply saying here is that let us not allow those insincere and heady westerners to destablize our country again!! El-basheir must credited for his effort to reach CPA with us and save us some lives at least!! what will happen if they take him out of the equation????????????????????

            Mr. Ring, Ring!!!

            First I would like to thank you for your rational argument. Above all, I want to assure you that I am still remembering well all the nightmares our people went and are still going through as the result of the destructive war in Sudan, but let us not forget that El-basheir that most of us are trying to sell out cheaply to ICC right now, was indeed the one that brought the CPA in to light, without whom, I believe we would have been still shedding our blood till now while our Western brothers watching us!!

            I suppose we should give him credit for that, but that doesn’t necessarily means we forget about all the atrocities and massacres were committed by his elite forces in NIF or SAF, does that make sense in your opinion or not??

            My brother, the world has changed, people are looking for allies, why are we still discriminating our Arab brothers in the Northern Sudan! which country in the world is lived by indigenous alone?? why we never stop calling them Arabs even for a second, regardless of the fact that they only have ancestors who were Arab in origin?? why are we not regarding ourselves as just Sudanese people regardless our past stories?? for example, if you are treating me discriminately, by referring to me as an African or black, what the hell do you think my feelings will be towards you?? why are we not accepting one another as one people of the greater Sudan!! yes no one from us in the southern has elected El-basheir during the war, but didn’t we confirmed his being our legitimate presindent according the CPA that made Mr. Kiir as his vice!!

            Yes, we had our ugly past, but will that stop us from moving forward and open a new phage in our story???????????????????? We all tried to eliminate one another during the past 22 years of the civil war, but who won?? I believe no one won the war on the ground, instead we all resorted to the round table, i.e. we all resorted to resolve our differences using the win-win strategy but after we lost many lives!! are we going to repeat the same mistake again!!

            Western are not interested in us, let everyone try to apprehend this, they are after our resources, thus they want African continent to be at war with itself so that they have chance to loot our resources!! Let us not love them simply because of their so-called Christianity that they are blindfolding the world with even though they don’t practise it themselves! I have nothing against them but I am just against their interference to our affairs!! let them back off and see if we will live or die!! without doing so we will never progress no matter what we do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

            Sudan first!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

              Well but Mr. Payol, the third writer;

              The delay of sallaries in South Sudan does not mean the weakness of GOSS but seekness of CPA lementation.
              Because if sallaries are hard to come out and start riot or violence, it may be an irritation factor to C P A. So southerners might be the most brave and stromg part in Sudan yet they are waiting for to fulfil the promise of the late Garang and so.
              MALUACH MALUACH.
