American Chronicle | Somali war criminals to ICC, the timing is ill-advised

http://somaliswiss.files.wordpress.com/2008/07/ahmedou_ould_abdallah.jpgUN secretary general´s special envoy to Somalia Ahmedou Ould-Abdallah, recently proposed the formation of an international commission mandated to probe killings and atrocities committed by the warring parts of Somalia during the 18 years of inter clan warfare. Ahmedou Ould Abdallah also called on the Security Council to adopt a resolution authorizing the international criminal court in Hague to indict and prosecute the perpetrators of war crimes in Somalia.Apropos the call of Ambassador Ould Abdallah, I do believe in terms of the timing it is counterproductive that such a high ranking UN diplomat who sponsored the peace talks between the transitional federal government and the alliance for the re-libration of Somalia-the first victory Mr. Ould-Abdallah has chalked up during his career as a UN especial representative for Somalia -to make such a call in this transitional period where the major players of Somali´s fratricidal war are involved in the peace process and elected Sheikh Sharif Sheikh Ahmed as a president in a bid to end Somali quagmire.
