Zimbabwean leader and African Union chairman Robert Mugabe on Tuesday harshly criticized the International Criminal Court after Sudan's president dodged an international arrest order by leaving early from a meeting of the continent's leaders in South Africa, a news agency reported. "This is not the headquarters of the ICC; we don't want it in this region at all," said Mugabe, who is chairing the 54-member African Union for one year. According to Mugabe, South African President Jacob Zuma said "he would not allow" police to arrest al-Bashir, the African News Agency reported.
