South Africa Failed by Not Arresting Sudan's Al-Bashir - ICC

The International Court of Justice at The Hague has ruled that South Africa's failure to arrest visiting President Omar al-Bashir was in breach of South Africa's obligations under international law but it would not refer the matter to the Security Council because the Pretoria government had previously accepted a similar ruling from a local court. Al-Bashir is under indictment before the ICC on charges of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity arising out of his government's campaign against rebels in Darfur between 2003 and 2008.
