AFRICA DUMPS THE INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT
Ahead of the 25th Summit of the African Union taking place in South Africa, the country’s government promised immunity to all attending officials. Despite an order by the High Court to the government to prevent Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, who is wanted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) for war crimes and genocide, from leaving the country, he was allowed to leave after the meeting.
