ICC prosecutor investigates alleged war crimes in Sudan

The International Criminal Court’s chief prosecutor is investigating allegations of war crimes and crimes against humanity in the town of al-Fashir in Darfur, Sudan, which has become a new front between the Sudanese army and the Sudanese Forces paramilitary group. Quick Support.

In a video statement released on Tuesday (11), prosecutor Karim Khan said that the ICC has an active investigation into possible atrocity crimes currently committed in Darfur.

“I am extremely concerned about allegations of widespread international crimes being committed in al-Fashir and the surrounding areas at this time,” Khan said, adding that his office was investigating those allegations “urgently.”

Its investigators were analyzing reports of what appeared to be ethnically motivated attacks against the civilian population, widespread use of rape and attacks on hospitals, he added.

Khan asked that anyone with possible evidence, video or audio material send it to his office.

Al-Fashir, in Sudan’s northwestern Darfur region, is home to more than 1.8 million people and is the latest front in a war between the Sudanese army and the PAF that began in April 2023.

The ICC can examine war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide and, in some cases, crimes of aggression, if committed on the territory of one of the court’s 124 member states or by citizens of ICC members. It may also have jurisdiction through referral from the United Nations Security Council, as happened with Darfur in 2005.

In January this year, the ICC prosecutor told the UN Security Council that he believed war crimes were being committed in Darfur by government troops and the PAF in El Geneina.
