LONDON, United-Kingdom, December 2, 2011/African Press Organization (APO)/ -- Amnesty response to ICC arrest warrent for Sudan's defence minister

"The ICC Prosecutor's request today for an arrest warrant against Sudan's current defence minister Abdelrahim Mohamed Hussein, is a step forward in the efforts to bring justice to the people of Darfur.

"However, this development also highlights the continuing failure of Sudan and other governments to cooperate with the ICC by arresting the other suspects - including President Al-Bashir, Minister of State Harun, and Janjaweed leader Ali Kushayb.

“Sudan and all state parties to the Rome Statute of the ICC have an unconditional obligation to arrest and surrender these individuals to the ICC."
