Practically, no state will arrest sitting heads of state or hand him over to the International Criminal Court or help endanger international law.

This is a risk and even ICC officials admitted that it’s so difficult to arrest any president who is still in office.

If any state tries to arrest sitting heads of state, this means the demise of the international diplomatic relations and diplomatic immunity and this in turn will result in absolute anarchy.

African Union stated that none of its members were obliged to arrest African leaders on orders of the court. The move is treated as a political success by the African leaders who believe that the Court is targeting the African in the first place.

African leaders believe that the Court will never prosecute Israeli officials who have committed gross crimes against humanity in Palestine under the eyes of the international community and ICC.

Since the court began operating, all of its nine investigations have focused on African nations.

The African leaders have called the court biased against Africans and they have succeeded in unifying their ranks during Johannesburg summit to hit the last nail in the Court.

justice is only applied on weak nations leaving the indicted powers free without questioning and even ICC officials are involved in moral crimes.

This has appeared with Okampo, the former ICC Prosecutor who was found guilty of sexual harassment although he pretended to be a man of justice.

Sudan’s case is a test of the African Union’s loyalty to its member states and it is also a test of credibility of the International Criminal Court which has focused its attention since it began functioning in 2002 on African leaders leaving the true criminal free.

One problem that the ICC was known to have from inception and was a major reason for US policy on the matter is that a legal system you are not willing to enforce is not legitimate and often does more damage than good by discrediting its concepts and those that advocate its norms.

The ICC in the end is just a tool for the West and so it horribly biased in favor of it. even though there is enough evidence for war crimes, no one from the US or the EU will ever be brought to trial on it.

Note: The source used in Post #1 is a mouthpiece for the Sudan government of Omar al-Bashir who has been indicted for genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity in Darfur.
