Prosecuting Sudanese President al-Bashir before the International Criminal Court: A Risky Venture?

Rapid Response Briefing

24th July 2008

On 14 July 2008 the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court sought the issue of an arrest warrant for Sudanese President, Omar Hassan Ahmad Al Bashir. The Prosecutor asserted that Al Bashir has committed the crimes of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes in the Darfur region. The request raises several interesting legal issues, including the immunity of a sitting head of state, the role of the Security Council, the nature of the evidence presented and the interaction between peace and justice. This seminar will address these issues.
