    Statement of Enough Project Sudan analyst Omer Ismail in response to the Arab League's selection of Sudan's General Mohamed Ahmad Al-Dabi to head a human rights monitoring team in Syria:

    "It is perplexing that the Arab League chose the Khartoum regime's General Al-Dabi to lead its team monitoring the Syria regime because of his record of turning a blind eye to human rights crimes, or worse. When he served as Sudan's former head of Military Intelligence and when he oversaw implementation of the Darfur Security Arrangement, alleged war crimes including genocide were committed on his watch. Instead of heading a team entrusted with a probe of alleged war crimes and crimes against humanity by Syria, the general should be investigated by the ICC for evidence of similar crimes in Sudan."
