The United Nations human rights office called on Sudan on Friday to cooperate with the International Criminal Court,ICC, which issued an arrest warrant for deposed President Omar al-Bashir for alleged war crimes nearly 15 years ago.
U.N. human rights spokeswoman Ravina Shamdasani told a Geneva news briefing that Sudan should fully cooperate with the ICC.
Earlier, U.N. human rights chief Michelle Bachelet said Sudanese authorities should release people held for peacefully protesting and investigate the use of force against demonstrations since December.
