BASHIR TELLS ICC TO EAT WARRANT


Sudan’s president Omar bashir was defiant towards the international criminal court on tuesday telling it to eat an expected warrant for his arrest for allege war crimes in Darfur.

“They will issue their decision tomorrow..this coming decision, they can prepare now they can eat it ( the warrant), ”  Bashir told a crowd of supporters who lit and stamped on an effigy of ICC prosecutor Moreno Ocampo. Bashir’s comments were at the opening of a hydroelectric dam in Merowe, northern Sudan, a day before the ICC judges were due to respond to a request by Ocampo for an arrest warrant for Bashir on charges of war crimes in the Darfur region of Western Sudan.  the opening of the dam took place in a carnival atmosphere with confetti and music, and Bashir sought to dismiss the importance of the Hague based court’s decision. They want us pre-occupied with their accusations, their issue..we want to say to people don’t be too concerned with these decisions.we want the answer” Bashir said.
