ICC prosecutor suspends investigations into Darfur war crimes
December 13 , 2014
Fatou Bensouda, the International Criminal Court (ICC) prosecutor, has suspended her probe into war crimes in Darfur, citing lack of action on part of the UN.
She said a “dramatic shift” in the approach of the UN Security Council was required.
In 2009, the ICC had indicted Omar al-Bashir, Sudan’s president, for alleged war crimes. However, Bashir has rejected the authority of the court.
Other officials from Sudan charged by the court have also not been arrested.
