suspects Bashir could come back to SA

She has also asked for a definite timeframe for which South Africa can explain the circumstances which al-Bashir was allowed to leave South Africa despite an arrest warrant by the court.

Al-Bashir visited South Africa in June this year for the African Union summit in Sandton.

Bensouda wants the court to assert South Africa’s obligation to arrest al-Bashir as a signatory to the Rome Statute.
