In case you haven’t heard, there’s a humanitarian crisis taking place over in Sudan in the Darfur region. Darfur is experiencing catastrophes tantamount to genocide, which have going on for five years plus.
To add fuel to the fire, Kenya may or may not be allowing an international fugitive into its country when it signs its new constitution. Who is this fugitive? It’s Sudanese president Omar al-Bashir.
Al-Bashir is subject to two arrest warrants issued by the ICC for atrocities committed in Darfur in Sudan. The first was issued in March 2009 on charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity. The second was issued in July 2010 on charges of genocide.
So there you have it, Kenya. Don’t let al-Bashir into the country or you’ll be aiding and abetting a suspected international criminal; unless you arrest him.
