The Sudanese President, Mr. Omar al-Bashir has received a warrant arrest from the International Criminal Court. Mr President is condemned by 7 counts of criminal responsibilities:
"• five counts of crimes against humanity: murder - Article 7(1)(a);
extermination - Article 7(1)(b); forcible transfer - Article 7(1)(d); torture -
Article 7(1)(f); and rape - Article 7(1)(g);

• two counts of war crimes: intentionally directing attacks against a
civilian population as such or against individual civilians not taking part in
hostilities -Article 8(2)(e)(i); and pillaging - Article 8(2)(e)(v)."

It is stated in the treaty for the ratification of the ICC
that
"It will not be part of the United Nations, and will be accountable to the
countries that ratify the Statute. Countries that ratify the Statute agree to prosecute
individuals accused of such crimes under their own laws, or to surrender them to the Court
for trial."
Therefore, countries that did not ratify this treaty, such
as Sudan, shall not be judged under ICC's jurisdiction
