Letter to POTUS: Don?t Allow Sudanese President in U.S.
Human rights activists, together with several Hollywood celebrities, have sent a letter to President Barak Obama demanding that he not allow Sudanese President Omar Al Bashir into the United States to attend the United Nations General Assembly.? The letter asks Obama to stop him upon landing in New York and ?to be turned over immediately thereafter to the Hague to stand trial.
According to international law, as the U.S. is the host country to the U.N., she is obligated to allow international leaders into her borders even if they be hostile countries. Bashir has been accused by the West of war crimes due to his direct responsibility in the massacre of people of Darfur, and elsewhere.
