3. SOUNDBITE (English) Christoph Heusgen, Permanent Representative of Germany to the United Nations:
“We all call the parties in the conflict for restraint. We of course believe that there has to be a peaceful solution to the conflict, and this this solution has to reflect the will of the people which we have seen during these last weeks and reflect the people on the streets asking for a change. What is very important now in the present very fluid situation that the human rights are observed, and the right of assembly, and we have to come to a credible and inclusive political process that will lead to the transition that we all want to.”

STORYLINE
Following the ousting of Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, German Ambassador Christoph Heusgen called on the parties in the conflict for “restraint” and “a peaceful solution to the conflict” that would “reflect the will of the people.”

Bashir’s ouster came amid protests that erupted nearly four months ago when the Government attempted to raise the prices of bread and basic commodities, and which are also believed to have claimed dozens of lives.

Given the “very fluid situation” Heusgen said, it was important that that “human rights are observed, and the right of assembly, and we have to come to a credible and inclusive political process that will lead to the transition that we all want to.”

Asked whether Bashir should stand trial on charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity including genocide linked to violence in Darfur - issued by the International Criminal Court in 2009 and 2010 – Heusgen said, “the Security Council resolution, whose number I forgot, remains in place. The obligation of Bashir to go to the jurisdiction of the ICC, and the country has the obligation to send him to the Hague, yes.”
