Can Bashir test the ICC waters in Kampala?

If Bashir decided to come to Kampala at the end of the month, the Uganda government has to decide what would be more damaging, arresting the ICC indicted man or letting him free

A few views I have so far gathered:

“The institutional framework to practically deliver this arrest seem to be largely absent even at the ICC level. There is a gap as the court operates on the cooperation, failure to cooperate is not fatal to Uganda.” – a Ugandan lawyer.

Many believe that the positions on regional blocks like AU and Arab league are mainly cosmetic and also a deliberate measure to set protective precedents for any other possible arrests. And no doubt some leaders have watched over or facilitated the committing of similar crimes that Bashir faces.
