Rony Brauman on the ICC’s Bashir Indictment

Posted by John Rosenthal

The prosecutor of the International Criminal Court has requested that the court issue an indictment against Sudanese president Omar Al-Bashir for the crime of "genocide". What would be the consequences of such a move? According to Rony Brauman, a former president  of the French NGO Médicins sans Frontières, further inflation of the concept of "genocide" as applied in international law — and quite possibly a new round of violence in Darfur.
