On 20 November 2008, the International Criminal Court (ICC) Prosecutor submitted an application for arrest warrants for three Darfur rebels alleged to have been involved in attacks on African Union soldiers. These applications are now being considered by the Pre-Trial Chamber of the ICC. The ICC is independent and it would be premature to speculate on outcome of its internal deliberations.
We continue to call on all parties to the conflict to co-operate with the International Criminal Court. There can be no impunity for crimes committed in Darfur.
