On 1st anniversary of ICC naming Darfur War Crimes Suspects, Aegis co-founds wantedforwarcrimes.org

27 Feb 08 - Today, on the first anniversary of the ICC's naming of Ahmad Harun and Ali Kushayb as suspects wanted for war crimes and crimes against humanity in Darfur, 45 organizations throughout Europe, North America, the Middle East and Africa have launched WantedForWarCrimes.org, a campaign which calls for the UN Security Council to push for the immediate arrest of the two named suspects, in addition to targeted sanctions, such as freezing assets, on those in Khartoum who continue to harbour them. Aegis is helping to spearhead the campaign, which has issued wanted posters and urges members of the public to visit www.wantedforwarcrimes.org to send a protest email to all 15 heads of mission at the UN Security Council.
