Mr. Speaker, I am please to present a second petition from residents of Manitoba .
The petitioners have expressed support for an international criminal court process that is robust, efficient and sensitive to its short-term impacts on civilians against Sudan ‘s Omar al-Bashir, who has been charged with murder, rape, extermination and forcible transfer by the ICC for acts against the people of Darfur .
The signatories call upon the government to honour our commitments to UNAMID and advocate for the mission’s full deployment. For the ICC’s work to be effective, it must be supported by a robust peace process.
