Sudanese leader Omar al-Bashir is wanted by the International Criminal Court for war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide in Darfur. But when Bashir visited China on Wednesday, Chinese leader Hu Jintao gave him a red-carpet welcome.
Now, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navi Pillay, is criticizing the Chinese regime for failing to take action. Pillay said on Thursday (quote), "There is a duty and responsibility of every government, including China, to assist the court in bringing to justice to individuals who are sought for alleged violations."
According to the International Criminal Court's statutes, any member country has the responsibility of arresting individuals who are sought for alleged crimes. China, however, is not a member of the ICC, and is not bound by its regulations.
