Philippe Gout, Translated by Hancock Hutton “The tribulations of international criminal law : A chronicle of the legal proceedings targeting the former Sudanese president” in Politique africaine Voulume 158, Issue 2, April 2020, pages 101 to 122

The ousting of former Sudanese president al-Bashir in April 2019 met with enthusiastic reactions from the academic community and international commentators, not least because it raised the prospect that the deposed leader might finally be brought before the International Criminal Court. Nevertheless, the legitimacy of the ICC to press charges against the former Sudanese president is not a foregone conclusion, and the justifications provided by the court reveal a somewhat casual approach to legal technique and an alignment of the court’s prosecuting priorities with American judicial imperialism. Far from indicating a reconciliation with the ICC, the legal proceedings brought against al-Bashir in the Sudanese courts in fact represent a final attempt by the government of Sudan to prevent The Hague from encroaching upon their judicial sovereignty.
