Report says Sudan has done little to prosecute Darfur war crimes, 6/14/06

An international prosecutor said Wednesday that Sudanese authorities have done little to investigate and prosecute alleged war crimes in Darfur, a finding that could help determine whether Sudanese accused of murders and rapes there could one day face trial in an international court. In a report to the United Nations Security Council, Luis Moreno Ocampo, a prosecutor for the International Criminal Court, said he has documented thousands of alleged murders in Darfur, but that special courts established by Sudan have heard only a handful of minor cases. Investigations into major cases were moving slowly, if at all, he said.
