SA Urged to Arrest Bashir

SALC has written an open letter to the South African ministers of Justice and of International Relations and Co-operation, asking that the country abide by the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court

The Southern African Litigation Centre (SALC) says it has written an open letter to the South African ministers of Justice and of International Relations and Co-operation, asking that South Africa abide by the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court 27 of 2002 (the ICC Act).
 
SALC executive director, Kaajal Ramjathan-Keogh, states that South Africa's own law and its membership of the ICC obliges it to apprehend Sudan’s president, Omar Hassan Al Bashir, if he attends the African Union summit next month.
 
“We want to remind the South African government that South Africa has committed itself to bringing a person suspected of committing genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity to justice by signing the Rome statutes, and by demonstrating their obligations in terms of the Rome statutes,” adds Ramjathan-Keogh.
