Sudan: Outgoing ICC Prosecutor urges Security Council to keep focus on justice in Darfur

Fatou Bensouda

Outgoing ICC Prosecutor has urged the UN Security Council to keep focus on justice in Darfur. 

In her final briefing to ambassadors, Fatou Bensouda underlined that the Court is the only institution that promised hope to victims of the brutal conflict in the Sudanese province. 

The ICC investigations centre around allegations of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity, committed during fighting which began two years earlier between Government forces, backed by allied militia known as janjaweed, and Darfur rebel movements. 

Five arrest warrants were issued, including against President Omar Al-Bashir who was deposed in a 2019 after 30 years in power.   

Alleged former janjaweed commander Ali Muhammad Ali Abd-Al-Rahman, also known as “Ali Kushayb”, voluntarily surrendered himself to the ICC in June 2020 and his confirmation of charges was held last month.
