Bensouda revives interest in Uhuru ICC case

09 March 2015, 18:09 William Korir

Nairobi - International Criminal Court ICC's Chief Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda has been allowed to appeal a decision in which she wants to report the Kenyan government to the Assembly of State Parties ASP for non cooperation in the case against president Uhuru Kenyatta.

The chief prosecutor has been allowed to appeal the decision to take Kenya to the ASP for allegedly frustrating her efforts to get vital information in pursuing charges against the president.

Bensouda says that she was denied access to financial records belonging to the president, which would have strengthened her case.

Initially, Bensouda filed the application in protest of non-cooperation against the Kenyan Government, alleging that the government had failed to comply with a request to produce financial and other records relating to Uhuru, in late 2013, nine months after he assumed the presidency.

The ICC, a year later though issued a decision rejecting this application and declining to refer the matter to the ASP but after appealing the decision, Bensouda has finally landed a break.

" In its decision, today, Trial Chamber considered the request and the observations made by the Kenyan Government and the legal representative of the victims. The chamber decided to authorise the prosecutor to appeal the decision on Kenya’s cooperation," said the ICC.

Uhuru's charges of crimes against humanity were dropped late 2014 after Bensouda admitted that she did not have enough evidence to actually be able to proceed to trial but said that she would revisit it once she landed favourable evidence against the president.
