Uganda Offers Asylum to Sudanese President!

Uganda has considered granting asylum to Sudanese president Omar al-Bashir, who is currently wanted by the International Criminal Court, a state minister said.

“If Uganda is approached to grant asylum to Bashir it is an issue that can be considered at the highest level of our leadership,” state minister for foreign affairs Henry Okello Oryem told AFP.

He said that as a result of Bashirs key role in mediating a peace deal in neighbouring South Sudan, “his asylum in Uganda is what the government of Uganda can consider.”

In the meantime, “Uganda is keenly following the developments in Sudan and we ask the new leadership there to respect the aspirations of the Sudanese people among them and peaceful transfer of power to the civilian rule”.

Bashirs three-decade reign was toppled last week by top commanders after four months of nationwide demonstrations.

Protest leaders say Bashir must face justice, however the transitional military council currently leading the country has said it will not extradite the ousted leader.

The council says Bashir remains in custody, but has not specified his whereabouts or that of other senior regime leaders.

Uganda is one of several African nations which have hosted Bashir in the past without handing him over to the ICC, despite being signatories of the tribunal.

Bashir faces charges of genocide, war crimes.
