South Africa asks Sudans Bashir to stay away

Bashir’s attendance at the African Union (AU) in South Africa last June created a diplomatic and legal mess for the South African government which not only violated the International Criminal Court (ICC) obligations, but also an explicit order by the High Court to prevent the Sudanese leader from departing pending a decision on whether to extradite him to the Hague.

The Sudanese leader fled the country hours before the High Court ordered his arrest and the South African government told the judges that he sneaked out without their knowledge.

The ICC issued two arrest warrants for Bashir in 2009 and 2010 charging him with war crimes, genocide and crimes against humanity in Sudan’s western region of Darfur.
