The announcement by the Prosecutor of his submission to the Judges of the International Criminal Court (ICC) of an application for the issuance of a warrant of arrest against the President of Sudan, Omar Hassan Ahmad Al Bashir, for genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes, has triggered diverse reactions from states, international organizations and other international actors. The article discusses the possibility of a request by the United Nations (UN) Security Council that the prosecution against Al Bashir be deferred, in the light of the background, timing and context of the Prosecutor's application.
