The President of Sudan, Omar al-Bashir has found a new friend, President Tomislav Nikolić of Serbia.
President Tomislav awarded him with the Medal of the Republic of Serbia for accomplishments in developing and strengthening peaceful cooperation and friendly ties between the Republic of Serbia and the Republic of Sudan as the country celebrated the Serbian Day of Statehood.
The Republic of Serbia is a signatory of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. However, Bashir was not present to receive the award.
The International Criminal Court has issued two arrest warrants to date containing charges against him.

Would this money be part of the Sh6 billion set aside for the Internally Displaced Persons integrated into various communities at the time of the conflict in Kenya? If the answer is in the affirmative, the President’s action would not only be a violation of a High Court order, but it would also seem to be using the money as a bribe to voters ahead of the August 8 elections.
