Sudan's Al-Bashir Questioned About Darfur War Crimes

After quizzing several leaders of the ousted regime, Sudan's public prosecution said ousted president Omar Al-Bashir will appear before the Darfur War Crimes Investigation Commission. In July, Bashir and 27 former officials went on trial for their alleged part in the 1989 military coup that brought the Bashir regime to power. The former leader and some of his top officials have also been indicted by the International Criminal Court. During negotiations with the armed rebel movements in Juba in February, the government agreed to extradite Bashir to the ICC, although the Attorney General said the suspects might have to face justice in the country instead of being transferred to the Hague.
