ICC reported Sudan to the UN
Adiah Oreyomi at 12:00 AM ET

On May 26, 2010, the International Criminal Court (ICC) reported Sudan to the UN Security Council for its noncooperation in pursuit of alleged war criminals Ahmad Harun and Ali Kushayb, who were wanted for 51 counts of crimes against humanity and war crimes. Because Sudan was not a permanent member of the Rome Statute, the treaty that established the ICC, it refused to recognize the ICC's jurisdiction in this matter even though the UN had granted the ICC jurisdiction over the conflict in Darfur. Despite international calls for their arrests, Harun went on to become an elected governor of South Kordofan in June 2011, while Kushayb remains at large.
