ICC funding terrorism in Kenya, says government

30 January 2015, 15:00 William Korir

Nairobi - The International Criminal Court ICC has a personal vendetta against Kenya, the government has claimed.

In a report presented during the ongoing African Union Summit in Addis Ababa, of which News24 has gained access to, the government claims that the Court had a vendetta against the country and especially president Uhuru Kenyatta.

The document states that despite the court knowing that the prosecution did not have evidence, it still insisted on pressing forward with the case, and dragged Uhuru's name through the mud for an extra year of a case that was non existent.

" Where  the Office of the Trial Prosecutor admits that it lacks sufficient evidence, one fails to understand how they are still going on.

" The case against President Kenyatta could very well have collapsed at the Pre-Trial Chamber, if the Prosecutor had not been allowed by Judge (Ekaterina) Trendafilova to suppress recanted evidence from Witness 4, " the statement claimed.

The document also further said, controversially that the ICC was in many ways a part of terrorism, stating that they worked with members of the Mungiki sect, who are off shoots of the Al Shabaab sect.

" OTP continues to legitimise criminal groups & embolden them and their off shoots to continue committing crime. Essentially, the ICC could very well be financing terrorism in and around Kenya.

" In all likelihood, some of these members are part of local network of terror gangs used by Al Shabaab," the document added.

It is understood that the ICC has not taken the comments lightly and will make its own statement as regards the allegations.

The ICC dropped president Kenyatta's case late last year due to lack of evidence.

The OTP though, led by Chief Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda had said severally that it had been frustrated by the government of Kenya, which did not release vital pieces of information linked to the Kenyatta case.
