14 07 2008

 

With all this corny rap beef circulating around our world, that we give so much credence to its time to pay attention to some news that really matters!  Sudan President Omar Hassan al-Bashir was charged with Genocide today by the International Criminal Court.  He is charged with killing (ordering the killings) of over 2.5 MILLION people in Dafur!  2.5 MILLION PEOPLE!!!! HOW CAN YOU DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT?!?!?!  Truly crazy I tell ya!  But, check out the report found on HIPHOPDX!


 

he chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, Luis Moreno-Ocampo, has filed genocide charges against Sudan’s president for facilitating five years of brutal murder and rape in his country, according to CNN.

Moreno-Ocampo, whose path to developing the prosecution’s case to convict Sudanese president Omar Hassan al-Bashir was partially chronicled in the filmDarfur Now , urged a three-judge panel to issue an arrest warrant foral-Bashir today (July 14) in hopes that it would prevent the deaths of approximately 2.5 million people forced from their homes and are still under attack from the government-assisted Janjaweed militia.

The five charges against al-Bashir include masterminding attempts to wipe out African tribes with murder, rape and deportation.

After three years I have strong evidence that al-Bashir is committing a genocide. I cannot be blackmailed, I cannot yield. Silence never helped the victims. Silence helped the perpetrators. The prosecutor should not be silent,” said Moreno-Ocampo in an interview.

Moreno-Ocampo’s request says the there is reason to believe that that al-Bashirbears criminal responsibility for five counts of genocide, two counts of crimes against humanity, and two counts of war crimes.

They are raping women, raping girls, raping in groups — raping to destroy the communities,” said Moreno-Ocampo. “Rape is a tool in the genocide — the most important tool today.
