Activists call for the arrest of Sudan President Omar al-Bashir

BY APN Reporter

Human rights activists have asked Ugandan government, to arrest Sudanese President, Omar al-Bashir and surrender him to the International Criminal Court (ICC), where he’s wanted for crimes against humanity.

The call by the civil society organizations comes just hours after the Sudanese president arrived in the country for a two-day visit.

In a press conference held at Human Rights Network Uganda in Ntinda, Kampala, the executive director of Hurrinet, Mohammed Ndifuna, said “Bashir should be arrested following the alleged killings he orchestrated.”

The ICC issued double warrants for Bashir in 2009 and 2010 on two counts of crimes against humanity and genocide of more than 300,000 deaths in Sudan’s Darfur region. Copies of the warrants were served to his government.
