Boonstra on the Security Council and Bashir

by Kevin Jon Heller

It’s a tiny bit off topic, but it’s worth noting that after much bluster about how the ICC was destroying the “peace process” in the Sudan by indicting Bashir, none of the Security Council members put deferring the prosecution under Article 16 of the Rome Statute on the Council’s agenda for September.  Over at UN Dispatch, our colleague John Boonstra has an excellent post explaining why that might be the case.  Go take a gander.
