I'm still after Uhuru, Bensouda says

27 August 2015, 14:35 William Korir

Nairobi - ICC prosecutor Fatou Bensouda says that the case against President Uhuru Kenyatta is still on and that victims of the 2008 Post Election Violence should not be worried that he has walked away scot free.

Bensouda, in a letter to the victims through their lawyer Fernal Gaynor stated that she was of the belief that the case would be re-established in due course.

She said that the trial chamber, despite taking the case away, stated that the case would be re-established if the requisite evidence was found.

" The Prosecution’s letter to the LRV does not state that the Prosecution has permanently terminated investigations in the Kenya Situation, or that it has concluded ‘not to proceed’ with a prosecution against Mr Kenyatta," Bensouda said Wednesday.

" To the contrary, in its letter, the Prosecution stressed that it would continue to monitor the situation, listen carefully to people who come forward with evidence and make further applications for warrants of arrest or summonses to appear if circumstances change and the necessary evidence emerges," she added.

She added that the move to end Uhuru's case was taken at the time because it was the correct decision but that recent developments should lead to hope.

This is because the trial chamber recently approved the opening of a case in which the Kenyan government is being investigated for not cooperating with the ICC.

The claim has been refuted by Kenya.
