Lawyers to seek genocide charge against Sudan's Bashir
AMSTERDAM, June 29, 2009 (Reuters) - Prosecutors will try to charge Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir with genocide in Darfur after the International Criminal Court (ICC) denied this count in March, prosecutors at the court said on Monday.
The court said last week it would allow prosecutors to appeal its ruling.
Prosecutors said in an e-mailed statement they would appeal on or around July 6 against the ICC's decision to exclude the genocide count.
The court, set up in 2002 by international statute, could change its decision if the prosecution could gather additional evidence, the ICC said in March.

Maybe ICC chief prosecutor Moreno-Ocampo is missing being in the spotlight.
