A GENOCIDE is going on in Darfur. So concludes Luis Moreno-Ocampo, the chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC), after three years of investigations into the atrocities in Sudan’s ravaged western province. The mastermind behind it all, he suggests, is Sudan’s own president, Omar al-Bashir. On Monday July 14th the prosecutor asked the court to indict Mr Bashir with ten counts of mass crimes, including three for genocide, and to issue a warrant for his arrest. == http://www.economist.com/world/international/displaystory.cfm?story_id=11737170

Violation of human rights should be stopped

Over the past five years of conflict between various rebel groups, Sudanese armed forces, and the government-backed militia known as the janjaweed, perhaps 300,000 Darfuris have died and millions have been forced from their homes. To stop genocide which is going on in Sudan and supported by it's president Omar al-Bashir, as Luis Moreno-Ocampo, the chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) claims, ICC should prosecute him.





Prosecution of the president will not stop violation of human rights

Darfur covers an area of some 493,180 square kilometers (190,420 sq mi) approximately the size of Spain. To accuse President of Sudan to be able to personally in control of all the killing in such a large area and to be able to know what each warring factions is doing to the other is a bit of a fallacy. Therefore prosecution of one person, the president Omar al-Bashir will not stop the genocide.

al-Bashir is the leader of his country, and as the leader he has a responsibility for the equal protection of all people in his country. Rather than step up to that responsibility, as difficult as it may be to do, he has apparently refused his responsibility in favor of some other goal, and by this he reached the total distruction of an entire people, either purposefully or accidentally.
