Sudan’s PM Hamdok says government ready to cooperate with ICC over Darfur

Published: Updated:

Sudan’s government is ready to cooperate with the International Criminal Court (ICC) for those accused of war crimes to appear before the court, Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok said on Saturday, a list that includes ousted President Omar al-Bashir.

The country has also come a long way toward being removed from the US state sponsors of terror list, Hamdok said in a televised address he gave on the anniversary of his ascent to office.

The International Criminal Court issued arrest warrants against al-Bashir in 2009 and 2010 on charges of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity in Sudan’s restive Darfur region.
