Despite the historic victory made in Sudan after days of relentless protest that saw their hardliner and controversial leader Omar-Al Bashir announce his step down, justice has already turned out dramatic in the country with the latest revelation.
A Sudanese army official says the military authorities will not extradite deposed President Omar al-Bashir but will try him at home, before the nation.
Col. Gen. Omar Zein Abedeen made the remarks at a press conference on Friday in the capital, Khartoum, defending the military’s removal of al-Bashir from power.
He says the ouster “was not a coup” but a response to the people’s demands.
He said that handing over al-Bashir would be “an ugly mark on Sudan … even rebels carrying weapons, we won’t extradite them.”
Al-Bashir is wanted by the International Criminal Court, where he faces charges of war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide for his deadly campaign against insurgents in Darfur
