ICC Prosecutor to Expand Darfur Indictments

The BBC “The World” (radio broadcast) has reported that ICC Chief Prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo will begin filing indictments against several top Sudanese Government officials next month, accusing the entire government of playing a role in crimes against civilians in Darfur.

To date the highest level official to be indicted is Ahmed Muhammed Haroon, former Interior Minister.  Rather than surrender Haroon, the Sudanese regime promoted him to Minister for Humanitarian Affairs, where he was placed in charge of the very refugees that he and his troops had assaulted and terrorized.
