For almost three decades, President Omar Hassan al-Bashir ruled Sudan with a heavy fist, jailing opponents and former allies, overseeing the bloody suppression of the Darfur region and squashing protests that dared to challenge his regime.

But on Saturday, Mr. al-Bashir, 75, was convicted and sentenced to two years in detention in a much anticipated trial that was the first attempt by his own citizens to call him to account.

while many have respond to the development as a good way for Omar to meet his Waterloo, others have said that he deserves more than a two year term looking at the series of atrocities the former dictator committed while in office.
