War crimes judges in The Hague delivered a slap to Jordan Monday, referring the Arab country to the United Nations for failing to arrest the visiting Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, who is wanted on genocide charges.The judges decided that Jordan's "non-compliance" should be referred to the U.N. Security Council as well as the tribunal's own Assembly of State Parties.In July, the judges ruled that South Africa had flouted its duties to the ICC in 2015 by failing to arrest Bashir, when he attended an African Union summit.But presiding ICC judge Cuno Tarfusser, who also signed Monday's order against Jordan, decided that it would be "effectively futile" to refer Pretoria to the U.N.
