Pretoria - The government broke its silence on the Omar Al-Bashir saga. Last week the Sudanese head of state safely left SA before the end of the AU summit despite two warrants for his arrest being issued by the ICC for war crimes and genocide. The government denied on Monday having prepared an escape plan for the Sudanese president. According to media reports, the plan was prepared in advance by five ministers and the Sudanese president was promised diplomatic immunity. The media cited an unnamed source but according to government spokesman Phumla Williams, the information is false. Government is expected to give an explanation by Friday. Omar Al-Bashir’s departure was a violation of SA’s constitution as well as an order issued by North Gauteng High Court.
