Botswana differs with AU over Bashir

Botswana yesterday distanced itself from a decision by African leaders to ignore the International Criminal Court order to extradite Sudan’s President Omar Hassan al-Bashir, the foreign ministry said.

“The Government of Botswana does not agree with this decision and wishes to reaffirm its position that as a State Party to the Rome Statute on the International Criminal Court (ICC) it has treaty obligations to fully co-operate with the ICC in the arrest and transfer of the President of Sudan to the ICC,” Foreign Minister Phandu Skelemani said in a statement.
