JUST IN: Omar Al- Bashir Flies Out Of South Africa, Court To Rule On Arrest

Omar Hassan al-Bashir

A South African court would on Monday 15th June 2015 decide weather Sudanese president Omar Al Bashir would be arrested for allegations of war crimes.

The Sudanese president who was in Johannesburg for the African Union summit was seen leaving his hotel in a black BMW and reportedly heading for Waterkloof Air force base in Pretoria.

A news conference would be held in the Sudanese capital upon the arrival of Al-Bashir. On Sunday, a judge barred Mr. Al-bashir from leaving until an application for his arrest has been considered
A Pretoria High court would rule weather Al-Bashir is to be arrested and handed to the International Criminal Court (ICC).

The UN says that about 300,000 people in Sudan have died and more than two million have fled their homes since fighting began in 2003.

Government forces and allied Arab militias are accused of targeting black African civilians in the fight against the rebels.

Meanwhile, the United Nation Secretary General, Mr Ban Ki Moon on Monday 15th June 2015 said that warrant of arrest issued by the ICC must be implemented by member countries who have signed up for status of the court.
