PRESS RELEASE


Warrant Against Sudan President Is a Fraud
Intended To Weaken Government

Feb. 27, 2009 (EIRNS)—High-level Sudanese sources have today revealed that John Prendergast, a well-known opponent of the Sudan government who depicts himself as a defender of the population of Darfur region of Sudan, has indicated that if Sudan President Omar al-Bashir would agree not to run for President in the election scheduled for later this year, the impending charges by the International Criminal Court (ICC) could be made to disappear.

The sources indicated that the goal of the ICC assault against President al-Bashir is to create chaos in the country, which would facilitate the separation of South Sudan and other regions, from the nation.

These revelations demonstrate that the claim that the purpose of the ICC indictment is to bring accountability for alleged crimes of genocide in the Darfur region of Sudan, is a lie. The ICC indictment, expected March 4, is a fraud, with no regard for the lives of the people of Darfur and Sudan. As a result of this revelation of the true intent of the ICC indictment—to oust President Bashir, and weaken the Presidency of Sudan—all leaders, especially those in the U.S government should act immediately to quash the expected ICC warrant. Failure to act now to prevent the issuance of the arrest warrant against Bashir, would demonstrate a profound lack of morality and commitment for justice in Africa.

The ICC is being used to prevent the Sudan nationalist government from carrying out a nation-wide development strategy which would unify the disparate segments of the country, as it was run by the British at the time the country was part of their colonial empire.

The revelation that the goal of the ICC initiative is not to do anything to benefit the people of Darfur, but to weaken the government, is a further indication, as charged by Lyndon LaRouche Feb. 19, that the ICC, funded by the world's top drug-pusher, George Soros, is merely a tool of Britain's Mark Lord Malloch-Brown, Minister of State in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, on behalf of the London-based Anglo-Dutch imperial financial cartel.

LaRouche added: "There should be no recognitions of the ICC. It's a complete violation of international law. The people who are pushing it should be questioned as to their morals and sanity. This very indictment is a crime against humanity, and the sponsors of the indictment should be brought to trial by some suitable agency."

The continuous destabilization of Sudan by insurgencies in the various regions of Sudan, all run from outside Sudan, have made it impossible for the Sudan government to development the nation, to the advantage of the entire population. There is no indication that the ICC has investigated funding for anti-government insurgencies coming from Dubai, and elsewhere. There are also numerous reports of a big arms buildup by the Government of South Sudan.

Political attacks on the government worsen pre-existing economic problems that are confronting Sudan. By 1993, Sudan was the largest debtor in the world to the World Bank and IMF. If Sudan's infrastructure were developed, it could be a breadbasket that could feed all of Africa. However, it is now a net importer of food. Hemmed in by insurgencies, and the ignorant supporters of those insurgencies, Sudan cannot successfully develop its economy.
