We noted the other day that Sudanese Islamist leader Hassan al-Turabi had called for Sudanese President Bashir to be handed over to the International Criminal Court. Not surprisingly, al-Turabi has now been detained for his comments. This is not the first time al-Turabi has been held by the government for voicing his views. While Bashir might hope the arrest stops fellow Sudanese from calling for his ouster, this might well be an uphill battle if the International Criminal Court issues a warrant for his arrest. Our own Omer Ismail discusses the arrest over at Voice of America.
