Sudan: President Bashir Escapes ICC Arrest

Screen Shot 2015-06-29 at 10.25.15 PM

This week the President of Sudan, wanted by the International Criminal Court for human rights violations and war crimes in his own country, nearly escaped what was widely expected to be his arrest in South Africa and handover to the ICC, where he would be tried for his crimes. Knowing the South African courts would possibly arrest him on Monday morning, he fled the country supposedly without clearance to return to the safety of Sudan. Whether or not South Africa would have arrested him (which they were required by ICC law to do), of course, is unknown. Nonetheless, this quote, supplied by The Economist‘s daily news update, is apropos for all countries who allow their neighbors to commit crimes and oppress their own people.
