US actor wants to put al-Bashir in the hot seat

Clooney sponsors satellite to keep an eye on Sudan

Venice, August 28 - American actor and director George Clooney said during a press conference at the Venice Film Festival on Wednesday that he has invested in a satellite placed over the border of North and South Sudan to keep an eye on Sudanese dictator Omar al-Bashir. Clooney, who was presenting the film directed by Alfonso Cuaron, Gravity, which he is starring in together with Sandra Bullock, said that he bought the satellite to monitor more possible "atrocities" being carried out there and to put pressure on al-Bashir, who has been found guilty of war crimes by the International Criminal Court in the Hague. An outspoken advocate for peace in Darfur, Clooney said that he used the money earned for his Nespresso ads to pay for the satellite and its upkeep.
