Sudan protecting Darfur suspects: justice minister

From Reuters, January 26, 2011:

Sudan is protecting two men wanted for war crimes in Darfur and is “not serious” about pursuing members of allied militias for committing atrocities, the country’s own state minister for justice said on Wednesday.

Minister Bol Lul Wang is a member of south Sudan’s dominant Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM), former southern rebels who joined a coalition government with the north after a 2005 peace deal ended decades of civil war.

The statements from inside the coalition will test already strained north-south relations as south Sudan prepares to secede, after southerners overwhelmingly chose to declare independence in a referendum this month.
