Who Is Omar al Bashir of Sudan?

Omar al Bashir is the seventh president of Sudan who took over power in 1989 during a military coup that ousted the then democratically elected former prime minister Sadiq al-Mahdi. Since his coup, Omar Bashir has been re-elected three more keeping him in the presidential office. He became the first sitting president to be indicted by the International Criminal Court ICC for several crimes of mass killing, rape, and pillage against civilians in 2009.

The lengthened administration of Omar Bashir has been categorized with war, violence, corruption and mass killings amounting to hundreds of thousands of lost lives over the years and the separation of South Sudan which became an independent country in 2011. All these prompted the charges of the ICC against him for genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes. The indictments against Omar Bashir at the ICC however, did not stick for lack of sufficient evidence directly linking him to the alleged crimes, on the ground that no evidence shows that he personally took part in such activities, making him more or less a suspect of being criminally responsible, as an indirect co-perpetrator. However, the Russian and Chinese government, African Union, League of Arab States and the Non-Aligned Movement all opposed the verdict of the ICC.
