SUDAN: ICC reprimands Jordan over Bashir

The International Criminal Court has said that Jordan will not be referred to the UN Security Council for failing to arrest the former Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir on war crimes charges.

The split decision by the five judge panel reverses a previous decision by the ICC.

But the court did uphold a reprimand of Jordan for not arresting Mr Bashir in 2017 when he attended an Arab League Summit in Amman, despite there being two international warrants for his arrest.

Omar al-Bashir, who was toppled last month by mass protests after 30 years in power, has travelled to a number of countries over the past decade without being arrested.
