Sudan: War Crimes

Volume 482: debated on Tuesday 11 November 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what discussions he has had with the government of Sudan on the arrest of Ali Kushayb; and if he will make a statement. (232092)

We are aware of reports that Ali Kushayb has been arrested in Sudan and could be tried by the Government of Sudan. We continue to call on the Government of Sudan to co-operate fully with the International Criminal Court over the two existing arrest warrants, which includes one for Kushayb. We hope Kushayb’s arrest is a step towards this. There can be no impunity for crimes committed in Darfur.
