War Crimes High Court appeals to evidence of atrocities in Sudan

The International Criminal Court has called on governments and human rights organizations to provide information and evidence to help the country further investigate war crimes and crimes against humanity in Sudan’s brutal 14-month civil war.

ICC Prosecutor Karim Khan said in a video statement that civilians in Sudan are being attacked and killed because of their skin color and ethnicity, and appealed to people on the ground to send video and audio evidence and contacts so that The Hague court can investigate. The move comes days after the United Nations Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide said there was a strong possibility that genocide had occurred in Darfur – a worrying echo of events two decades ago, when the region became infamous worldwide for similar atrocities.

“The information collected daily by my office from Darfur appears to reveal an organized, systematic and pervasive attack on human dignity,” Khan said. “Based on the information we are receiving, I believe we are on the precipice. of something even worse.”
