    March 4, 2009 (WASHINGTON) — The International Criminal Court (ICC) announced that its judges approved charges made by its prosecutor against Sudanese president Omer Hassan Al-Bashir.

    The ICC announced that the arrest warrant was issued for seven counts out of for war crimes and crimes against humanity in Darfur. However the gencoide charges were dropped.

    On July 14th 2008 the ICC prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo filed 10 charges: three counts of genocide, five of crimes against humanity and two of murder and accused Al-Bashir of masterminding a campaign to get rid of the African tribes in Darfur; Fur, Masalit and Zaghawa.

    The spokeswoman for the court in The Hague, Laurence Blairon, said the court would transmit as soon as possible to the government of Sudan a request for his arrest and surrender.

    "He is suspected of being criminally responsible ... for intentionally directing attacks against an important part of the civilian population of Darfur, Sudan, murdering, exterminating, raping, torturing and forcibly transferring large numbers of civilians, and pillaging their property" Blairon said.

    Ocampo speaking to reporters today said that "our next work to be sure the arrest warrant is excuted.

    Sudanese presidential adviser Mustafa Osman Ismail said the government was not surprised by the decision.

    "They do not want Sudan ... to become stable," he said.

    US based Human Rights Watch (HRW) hailed the decision saying it means that "even those at the top may be held to account for mass murder, rape and torture".

    “With this arrest warrant, the International Criminal Court has made Omar al-Bashir a wanted man,” said Richard Dicker, director of the International Justice Program at Human Rights Watch. “Not even presidents are guaranteed a free pass for horrific crimes. By ruling there is a case for President al-Bashir to answer for the horrors of Darfur, the warrant breaks through Khartoum’s repeated denials of his responsibility.”

    Russian President Dmitry Medvedev’s envoy for Sudan criticized the decision.

    "The untimely decision of the International Criminal Court creates a dangerous precedent in the system of international relations and could have a negative effect both on the situation inside Sudan and on the general regional situation," said Mikhail Margelov.

    The United States said on Wednesday in response to an arrest warrant issued for Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir that those who committed atrocities must be brought to justice.

    "The United States believes those who have committed atrocities should be brought to justice," State Department spokesman Robert Wood said during a trip by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to Jerusalem.

    Wood added that any attacks against civilians and foreign interests in Sudan "must be avoided and will not be tolerated". The United States, he said, would support an immediate ceasefire and a long-term peace in Sudan
