INTERNATIONAL PRESS REVIEW ON ICC

OCAMPO: ARREST OF SUDAN'S AL-BASHIR "MATTER OF TIME"

Earth Times - June 1, 2010

Kampala - It is only a matter of time before Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir is arrested on war crimes' charges, the chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) said Tuesday.

Al-Bashir, the only sitting head of state wanted for war crimes, is the subject of an ICC arrest warrant for allegedly overseeing mass murder and rape in the restive province of Darfur.

"Arresting al-Bashir is a matter of time ... he is isolated," Moreno-Ocampo told journalists on the sidelines of a Kampala conference reviewing the performance of the ICC. "Nobody who has been indicted will escape the ICC."

The president won a comfortable victory in Sudan's first multi- party elections for 24 years, despite an opposition boycott, allegations of fraud, and logistical problems with the poll.

He is popular among northern Muslims, who have benefited from the economic growth he has ushered in since seizing power in a bloodless coup in 1989.

The United Nations estimates that the Darfur conflict, which began in 2003 when mainly non-Arab tribesmen took up arms against the Arab-dominated government in Khartoum, resulted in the deaths of 300,000 people and displaced 2.7 million.

DISRUPTION THREAT TO ICC CONFERENCE IN UGANDA

The Guardian - May 31, 2010

News round-up: Young people threaten to disrupt ICC conference over September's Kampala riots; WFP set to buy more food from Uganda; concerns over new cassava disease strain

by Eliza Anyangwe

Hundreds of opposition youth in Uganda have threatened to disrupt theInternational Criminal Court (ICC) conference, scheduled to begin today in Kampala, if the court does not take up their petition to see those who were responsible for the alleged deaths of more than 30 people in last September's riots brought to justice, reported Uganda People News.

Violence¬†erupted in the Ugandan capital Kampala last year after the government moved to prevent Ronald Muwenda Mutebi - the king of Uganda's largest ethnic group, the Baganda ‚Äď from visiting a part of his territory.

Civil Society across Africa is also taking an interest in the ICC conference with 124 organisations from 25 African countries releasing a declaration calling for their governments to show support for the work of the ICC.

"The civil society declaration is a strong showing of support for positive African government action at the Kampala conference and for the ICC more generally," said Oby Nwankwo, executive director of Nigeria's Civil Resource Development and Documentation Center.

"While some leaders have tried to paint Africa as against the ICC, our voices are testament to the fallacy of such claims," he added.

The ICC conference is scheduled to run until June 11 and on the agenda is a review of the state of international justice and a discussion of possible amendments to the ICC treaty, the Rome statute.

Officials gathered for the conference will also discuss extending the jurisdiction of the court to crimes of aggression, which has proved controversial and risks exposing the ICC to claims that it is politically motivated, suggests a report in the New York Times.

According to New Vision, the Ugandan parliament recently passed an ICC bill, making it one of only a handful of African countries to have ratified the Rome statute.
