Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, wanted by the International Criminal Court on allegations of war crimes and genocide in western Sudan’s Darfur region, joined the ranks of African leaders in attendance at a ceremony to mark the signing of a new constitution in Kenya.
Kenya, a signatory to the criminal court treaty, is obliged to arrest al-Bashir and hand him over to the court in The Hague.
Al-Bashir has travelled to several countries since the warrant was issued, including a recent trip to Chad.
They didn’t arrest him either.
If international war crimes suspects are allowed to wander freely around the world without worrying about being arrested, what chance will we ever have of bringing such criminals to justice?
