Chapter 3: Justice did not duel with peace in the alleged first genocide of the 21st century
Restricted access

Chapter 3 focuses on the arguments and criticisms against the Court that it could have imperilled a potential peaceful resolution of the conflict in Sudan and in particular over the alleged genocide in Darfur. The chapter discusses the arguments against the Prosecutor of the Court seeking arrest warrants against the President of Sudan, Al-Bashir, and his officials for genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes with intent to destroy in substantial part the Africa tribes in Darfur. The chapter delves into the history of the President to assess whether realistic peace negotiations were even possible with the master architect of two mass slaughters of civilians in his own country. The chapter also discusses criticism of the prosecution strategy by the Chief Prosecutor regarding the need to balance the need for a peaceful solution to the conflicts in Sudan with prosecuting the officials, especially the indictment of President Al Bashir.
