Council of Ministers Joins the International Criminal Court
Promising News from Sudan!
Darfur Women Action Group (DWAG) is pleased to share with our dedicated supporters that the Council of Ministers unanimously passed a draft law for Sudan’s ratification of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. While the draft law must now go to a vote before the Transitional Sovereignty Council, DWAG is encouraged that the interim government of Sudan has signaled its commitment to establish a sustainable foundation for justice and accountability not only for the crimes committed against the people of Darfur but across the Sudan. In a statement made via social media, Prime Minister Hamdok noted that “justice and accountability are the firm foundation of the new Sudan committed to the rule of law that we all seek to build.” Perpetrators of the genocide al-Bashir, Harun, and Hussein are now one step closer to facing the International Criminal Court and the people of Darfur are one step closer to receiving the justice they’ve waited so long for. Our tireless fight has just begun to see light. We have a long way to go and millions of steps more in our endeavor to see justice take its course in Sudan. Thank you for taking this daunting journey with us and for your continued support.
