Amnesty International has called on the
Central African Republic (CAR) to arrest wanted Sudanese President Omar
al-Bashir and surrender him to the International Criminal Court (ICC),
should he go ahead with his planned visit to the country on Thursday.
President Bashir is wanted on charges
of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes for his role in the
conflict in Darfur.
"The Central African Republic should
not shield President al-Bashir from international justice," said Christopher
Keith Hall, Senior Legal Adviser at Amnesty International.
