One of the most vibrant subjects in Darfur Now (our review here) is International Criminal Court (ICC) prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo and his efforts to prosecute Sudanese minister Ahmad Muhammad Harun & Janjaweed militia leader Ali Kushayb for war crimes. Those interested in a follow up should check out The Reckoning: The Battle for the International Criminal Court, premiering on PBS tonight (July 14) at 10PM. Filmmaker Pamela Yates & team spent three years following Moreno-Ocampo & the ICC, as the organization itself struggles to survive. Should prove very interesting.
