Whoever committed atrocities during the rule of the former Sudanese government will be brought to justice, Abdel-Fattah Al-Burhan, chairman of Sudan’s Sovereign Council, said on Wednesday.

Al-Burhan made the remarks during his meeting with Kenneth Roth, executive director of Human Rights Watch, at the presidential palace in Khartoum.

Al-Burhan reiterated the keenness of the transitional government to establish the rule of law and present a model of democratic rule.

He also emphasized the government’s commitment to respect international conventions, especially those relating to human rights, vowing to achieve justice in all parts of Sudan.

Sudan agreed on Tuesday to send all those criminals with arrest warrants in Darfur to the International Criminal Court for trial.

Officials belonging to the former Sudanese government are facing charges of alleged war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide in Darfur.

On March 4, 2009, the ICC issued an arrest warrant against former Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir for allegedly committing war crimes and crimes against humanity in Darfur region. Enditem
