The International Criminal Court investigation, which opened in June 2005, has produced several cases involving charges that include genocide, as well as other mass atrocity crimes. The UK’s support for the International Criminal Court is steadfast and we continue to call on the Sudanese authorities to ensure due legal process is followed.</p> more like this
