Sparer Keynoter Says International Court Needs More Support
To Stop the Crisis in Darfur
1 - 2 - 3 - 4

Juan M. Mendez, a special adviser to the United Nations on the prevention of genocide, criticized the international community for its inaction and silence on the Darfur crisis. Speaking at the 26th annual Edward V. Sparer Symposium in March, Mendez said the Security Council should have forced the Sudanese government to comply with a resolution calling for the International Criminal Court to investigate the 2003 massacres.

“We have given away cards that we could’ve used in negotiating with Khartoum to better protect and assist the more than three million Darfuris who are now totally dependent on international assistance,” said Mendez, the keynote speaker at the forum on international judicial responses to violence.
