苏丹总统巴希尔出访乍得 Sudan's Bashir visits Chad

21 July, 2010

苏丹总统巴希尔抵达乍得,这是他首次访问一个认可惩处战争罪的法庭的国家。这个法庭正在寻求逮捕巴希尔。

乍得首都恩贾梅纳的目击者说,巴希尔星期三飞抵该市,参加萨赫勒和撒哈拉地区国家的峰会。

国际刑事法庭去年指控巴希尔在饱受战乱的苏丹达尔富尔犯下战争罪和反人类罪,对他发出逮捕令。该法庭在上个星期对他加上了种族灭绝罪的指控。

巴希尔对乍得的访问招致总部设在美国的"人权观察"的愤怒。在巴希尔抵达乍得之前,该组织要求乍得要么拒绝巴希尔入境,要么将他逮捕。

Sudan's President Omar al-Bashir has arrived in Chad, his first visit to a country that recognizes the war crimes court seeking his arrest.

Witnesses in Chad's capital, N'djamena, say Mr. Bashir flew in Wednesday to take part in a summit of the Community of Sahel and Saharan States.

The International Criminal Court issued warrants for Mr. Bashir last year on charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity in Sudan's war-torn Darfur region. Last week, the court added genocide charges.

Mr. Bashir's visit is drawing outrage from U.S.-based Human Rights Watch. Ahead of his arrival, the group demanded that Chad either deny entry to Mr. Bashir or arrest him.
