ICC to rule Aug 19 on non-cooperation in Uhuru case


UHURU-ICC-COURTNAIROBI, Kenya, Aug 7 – The International Criminal Court’s Appeals Chamber will deliver its judgment on August 19, in the prosecutor’s appeal regarding Kenya’s non-cooperation in the case against President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Trial Chamber V(B) had declined to refer the matter in relation to non-compliance of the Kenyan Government to the Assembly of States Parties.

The Prosecution filed an application for a finding of non-cooperation against Kenya on November 29th 2013, alleging that the government had failed to comply with a request to produce financial and other records relating to President Kenyatta.

On December 3, 2014 Trial Chamber V(B) issued a decision rejecting the application for referral of the matter to the Assembly of States Parties.

President Kenyatta had been charged as an indirect co-perpetrator, with five counts of crimes against humanity allegedly committed during the post-election violence in 2007-2008.

The case has since collapsed after Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda admitted she did not have evidence to sustain charges but claims her efforts were frustrated by non-cooperation.
