International Court Charges Sudan President With Genocide
July 12, 2010 - 9:26 AM
Four months ago an appeals panel at the world's first permanent war crimes tribunal ruled that judges made an "error in law" when they refused last year to indict Al-Bashir on international law's gravest charge.
Prosecutors then filed their case again and on Monday judges issued an arrest warrant charging Al-Bashir with three counts of genocide.
Court prosecutor Luis Moreno Ocampo accuses al-Bashir of keeping 2.5 million refugees from specific ethnic groups in Darfur in camps "under genocide conditions, like a gigantic Auschwitz."
