After months of protests in Sudan, President Omar al-Bashir has been ousted by the country’s military.

George Clooney and John Prendergast, Co-Founders of The Sentry, said: “The people of Sudan have been waiting for this day for a long time, but it is only a tentative first step towards real change. The general who has taken over in this palace coup, Awad Ibn Ouf, has been sanctioned by the United States for orchestrating war crimes in Darfur, just as the just-deposed Omar al-Bashir has been. Bashir is also wanted for genocide and war crimes perpetrated in Darfur, and should be extradited and tried in The Hague for those crimes. However, removing the leader of a violent, corrupt system without dismantling that system is inadequate. The next steps are crucial. The international community must provide all possible support to ensure that the transition is a negotiated and inclusive one, and that the next president of Sudan reflects the will of its people.”
