Darfur Suspects not Facing ICC

Sudan says that it will not turn over two suspects in the Darfur Genocide to the International Criminal Court, according to BBC News, and they will not be prosecuted in Sudan either. The ICC said that Humanitarian Affairs Minister Ahmed Haroun and Janjaweed militia leader Ali Muhammad Ali Abd al-Rahman are suspected of 51 counts of war crimes.

Sudan did not sign the convention in which the ICC was established, and says that it has no jurisdiction.  It also says that its own courts are not capable or prosecuting them.
