Don't Let Bashir Get Away With Genocide

Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir is the only sitting head of state wanted for genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity for his crimes in Darfur.

Undeterred by his arrest warrants, Bashir continues his crimes with impunity, expanding his bombing and attacks against civilians beyond Darfur to those in the Sudanese states of Blue Nile and Southern Kordofan.

It is time for justice to be served.

The Case Against Bashir

Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir is the only sitting president with an outstanding arrest warrant from the International Criminal Court.

He stands accused of being the mastermind of the genocide in Darfur where Sudanese forces and government-sponsored militias carried out a campaign of attacks against innocent civilians.

On March 4, 2009 the ICC issued an arrest warrant against Bashir for 7 counts of crimes against humanity and war crimes. On July 12, 2010 the ICC issued an additional warrant adding 3 counts of genocide for the ethnic cleansing of the Fur, Masalit, and Zaghawa tribes.

Undeterred by his arrest warrants, Bashir continues his reign of impunity—attacking innocent civilians in Darfur and other states in Sudan and travelling freely to other countries.

Where is Bashir Hiding?

IN PLAIN SIGHT

President Bashir remains at large and is leading public life as president of Sudan.

There are no signs of criminal pursuit of Bashir, though the international community knows exactly where he is, where he has traveled, and often where he is going.

Bashir is not alone. Three members of his inner circle
are also wanted for crimes against humanity and war crimes.

Bashir's Cronies

Ahmad Muhammad Harun

A warrant for the arrest of Ahmad Muhammad Harun was issued by the International Criminal Court on April 27, 2007. He is charged with 20 counts of crimes against humanity and 22 counts of war crimes.

Harun was Minister of State as well as head of the “Darfur Security Desk” from April 2003 to September 2005. From 2006 to 2009, he served as the Minister of State for Humanitarian Affairs.

Harun is accused of recruiting, funding and arming the Janjaweed militia. The Janjaweed attacked civilians and pillaged towns and villages during counterinsurgency attacks.

Haurn is currently the governor of South Kordofan, which borders South Sudan, where a brutal counterinsurgency campaign is raging, most severely in the Nuba mountains.

Why Arrest Bashir

The Darfur genocide is the same crime that the international community said would never happen again in the wake of the Holocaust.

The response to the genocide has shown both the strength and weakness of the international community. Global action and pressure curbed the worst of the killing. But after the initial response, the international community has addressed the conflicts using a piecemeal approach. This approach has allowed the Sudanese government to continue to commit similar abuses in other regions and kept the main perpetrators of the genocide in power.

Our Goal

BashirWatch is building a strong international movement to pressure policymakers, government representatives, court officials, and other decision makers, especially in Africa and the Middle East, to support the ICC’s warrant for Bashir, bring him into custody, and transfer him to the International Criminal Court for trial.

If Bashir is Arrested, What’s Next?

When Bashir was first charged by the ICC for crimes in Darfur, some opponents argued that his arrest could bring “someone worse” to power. Failing to arrest Bashir has led to the atrocities happening today in Darfur, South Kordofan and Blue Nile.

At the very least, arresting Bashir would show the next would-be tyrant in Sudan -- or anywhere else -- that accountability is real and justice will catch up to them.

Ultimately, Bashir’s arrest will only be the first step. The international community will need to be prepared to commit the resources to protect the people, promote sustainable development and help build democratic institutions.
