The International Criminal Court Appeals Chamber has released its decision in the appeal of Omar al-Bashir, finding in a split ruling that Jordan should have arrested al-Bashir during his visit to the country in 2017 but that Jordan should not be referred to the United Nations for sanction over its failure to do so. The majority judgment—along with the concurring opinion of Judges Eboe-Osuji, Morrison, Hofmański and Bossa—is available below.
