ENOUGH Notes, New Film, Warrent Issued for al-Bashir

11 Feb

From ENOUGH this week:
IS THE JUSTICE AND EQUALITY MOVEMENT LAUNCHING ITS OWN CHARM OFFENSIVE?

Hoping to change the way the Arab world perceives the Darfur conflict, a London based human rights group released a film alleging Darfur war crimes. The film produced by Aegis Trust features interviews with four men the group says were former Sudanese army and militia members.

In the meantime,

Judges at the International Criminal Court have decided to issue an arrest warrant for President Omar Hassan al-Bashir of Sudan, brushing aside diplomatic requests to allow more time for
peace negotiations in the conflict-riddled Darfur region of his country, according to court lawyers and diplomats.

The decision to issue a warrant against him, reached by a panel of judges in The Hague, has been conveyed to the United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and is expected to be formally announced at the court in the coming days, officials at the United Nations said.
