ICC Speaks

05 Jun

“There is no military justification for bombing schools, no legal excuse for raping women. Those crimes have been carefully prepared, and efficiently implemented. Those are not mistakes. Those are not inter-tribal clashes. Those are not cases of collateral damage. Those are, simply, criminal acts against civilians, unarmed civilians.

So said the The Argentinian-born Luis Moreno-Ocampo, chief prosecutor for the International Criminal Court in the Hague in a speech to the UN Security Council. In the samespeech he pointed out that Sudan still refused to turn over Ahmad Harun, the indicted minister, and Janjaweed leader Ali Kushayb, while pledging cooperation with UN peacekeepers.

    No matter if he is caught or not, there can never be true justice for the people of Darfur. Every genocide we say never again and continue to let it happen. Where is our humanity?
