The Sudan government says it will hand over Omar al-Bashir, a former president, to the International Criminal Court (ICC) at The Hague to face war-crime charges.

CNN quoted a government source on Tuesday as saying they would produce all the Sudanese the ICC wanted for trial.

Al-Bashir was ousted in April 2019 after months of nationwide protests.

In December of the same year, he was sentenced to two years in a correctional facility after being found guilty of corruption and illegitimate possession of foreign currency.

The ousted leader who held sway in the country for three decades is reportedly the first person that will be tried for genocide at the ICC.

He is facing seven counts bordering on crimes against humanity. Al-Bashir allegedly committed the crimes between 2003 and 2008.

Releasing al-Bashir to The Hague is part of a proposed agreement between the Sudanese government and Darfur’s rebel movement, the source was quoted as saying.
