The move by the International Criminal Court (ICC) to indict Omar al-Bashir, the Sudanese president, on charges of "genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes in Darfur" has led both sides to lobby world leaders to support their cause.

The UN has estimated that 300,000 people have died since the civil war broke out in Sudan in 2003 and the ICC has alleged that al-Bashir was the mastermind of a plan to wipe out three ethnic groups in the war-torn western province.

Sudan has rejected the charges and says they will damage peace hopes.

On Monday's Riz Khan we look at the political and legal context of the debate and speak with Luis Moreno-Ocampo, the ICC chief prosecutor, and Dr Bona Malwal, special adviser to the Sudanese president.
