Troika of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) is scheduled to convene on August 4th to discuss the situation of the Sudanese president, Omar Al-Bashir, after an International Criminal Court (ICC) prosecutor brought charges of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity.
The meeting will bring together foreign ministers of Senegal and Sudan, and deputy foreign minister of Egypt. Iran and Turkey are also expected to participate at the meeting.
After a three-year investigation, Luis Moreno-Ocampo, the prosecutor of the ICC, presented evidence against al-Bashir, charging him with multiple counts of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes in the Darfur region. It is the first time that ICC has brought charges against a sitting president.
