Abstract: 

In late December, Sudan announced it opened an investigation into the crimes committed in Darfur by the former president Omar al-Bashir, 75, and his regime.[1] This move aims to end years of impunity and bring perpetrators to justice during a fragile political transition. A member of al-Bashir’s regime who is also being investigated is former intelligence chief Salah Gosh, who faces four cases against him.
