A member of Sudan’s ruling sovereign council said Tuesday that all Sudanese wanted by the ICC would be sent there. A senior government source confirmed to CNN that Bashir was among them.
The move is part of a proposed agreement between the Sudanese government and Darfur’s rebel movement, according to the source, who asked not to be named for security reasons. No timeline has been set.
ICC spokesman Fadi El Abdallah told CNN: “We are aware and following the news in relation to Mr. al-Bashir. We have no official confirmation on our side at this moment.”
In a video statement, a member of Sudan’s ruling sovereign council, Mohammed al-Ta’ashy, said: “We cannot achieve justice unless we heal wounds with justice.”
The ICC issued two arrest warrants for Bashir, first in March 2009 and then in July 2010. It now considers him to be “at large.”
