Jordan Sides with Arabs on Possible Icc Arrest Warrant Against Sudanese President

Standard

Amman, March 4 – Jordan sides with other Arab states on a possible arrest warrant from the International Criminal Court (ICC) against Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, a senior official was quoted by Petra news agency on Tuesday.

Jordan is with an Arab consensus on this issue, Minister of State for Media and Communication Affairs Nabil Al-Sharif told reporters following a cabinet meeting on Tuesday.

Jordan will abide by what the Arab states will agree on towards all issues of concern to the Arab nation, the official added, affirming that Jordan respects its commitments to the signed conventions and treaties.

Last year, ICC chief prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo took the Sudanese president as the mastermind of the campaign in Darfur that has allegedly claimed the lives of 350,000 people and displaced 2.5 million others.

The Sudanese government rebuffed the accusation and kept questioning the universal jurisdiction of the court since Sudan is not a member of the it.
