Sudan ready to cooperate with ICC over Bashir

Sudan ready to cooperate with ICC over Bashir

The Sudanese authorities say they’re ready to cooperate with the International Criminal Court over charges faced by the former President, Omar al-Bashir, and other ex-officials.

A delegation led by the ICC prosecutor Fatou Bensouda is currently in Sudan, investigating the conflict in Darfur in the early 2000s.

Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok said his government was committed to achieving justice.

Bashir has been charged by the ICC with genocide and crimes against humanity.

He’s currently in detention in Khartoum convicted of corruption and facing further charges related to the coup that brought him to power in 1989.
