UN urge Malawi to arrest Bashir

The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navi Pillay, urged Malawi to arrest the Sudanese president, Omar al-Bashir, who is wanted for war crimes and genocide charges by the International Criminal Court (ICC).

Speaking at a lecture in Johannesburg, Pillay said,

"I call on governments and remind them of their legal obligations, and I am disappointed when they do not keep up their obligations."

An arrest warrant was issued for Bashir, by the ICC, in 2008.
