A South African Court ordered Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir not to leave South Africa until it hears the issue raised by the International Criminal Court. ICC (International Criminal Court) has been urging South African Government to arrest Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir who is accused in Darfur conflict.
Why Omar al-Bashir is wanted by International Criminal Court
Mr. Omar al-Bashir was accused of killing the civilians in Darfur in 2003. At that rebels of that region took arms in hand against Government. More than 3000 people including 2000 plus rebels were killed in that clash. United Nation investigated the matter in deep but did not get any strong supportive evidence against Bashir.
But International Criminal Court did not withdrawn the charges of genocide, mass killing and war crimes. For African Union summit meeting Sudan’s president Omar al-Bashir is now in South Africa.
But Omar al-Bashir denies all the such charges and did not get arrested by himself. That’s why many countries basically European countries restricted him to access their countries.
Earlier the African Union refused and denied to accept the charges and accused International Criminal Court is biased about African Leaders.
