Harun is willing to hand him over to the International Criminal Court
Earlier, Ahmed Haroun, one of the main accused by the International Criminal Court of committing war crimes and genocide in the Darfur region of Sudan, said that he would prefer to be tried before the International Criminal Court rather than the Sudanese courts, which he described as biased.
And Reuters news agency reported that Ahmed Haroun, said in a statement that his family confirmed his authenticity, that “an authority with this miserable legal performance will not be able or willing to administer justice, in light of the atmosphere of continuous dismissal and displacement of judges and advisors and the constant threat that there is another disclosure that is being issued that cannot be released.” Justice will be served with it.”
Ali Kushayb had surrendered to the International Criminal Court in the Central African Republic last June.
Sudan’s transitional authorities, which were set up after al-Bashir was overthrown and imprisoned him, Baharun and others in April 2019, said they would cooperate with the International Criminal Court, and officials from the court visited Sudan.
In his statement, Harun said that he refused to testify in the context of a Sudanese investigation into the Darfur conflict, complaining of his indefinite detention and the dismissal of several judges and prosecutors by the transitional government.
Although he described the trial before the International Tribunal as politicized, he said he felt it was more likely that he would receive a fair trial in The Hague.
