Parliament to review international treaties, Crimes Act

21 October 2014, 16:19 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - The National Assembly is set to review the International Crimes Act and international treaties in order to ensure they affect Kenya positively.

Tetu MP Ndungu Gethenji, who is also the chairman of Parliamentary Committee of Defence and Foreign Affairs Relations, said the committee has passed a resolution over the review and that any treaty that is not serving the best interest for Kenya will be dismissed.

The International Crimes Act which domesticates the Rome Statute in which Kenya is a signatory is among the international treaties to be re-evaluated.

Speaking at Ihithe Secondary School in his constituency during inauguration of a new school bus, Ndung’u said calls for African states to withdraw from the International Criminal Court (ICC) have been renewed.

“We shall recommend to parliament about quitting ICC and dismissing some international treaties which are not serving the best interest of Kenyans and the sovereignty of our country," Ndung'u said.

He articulated his concerns that the ICC disregarded an African Union (AU) directive that no sitting President will be tried in a foreign court.

“Kenya will also consider lobbying other African countries to withdraw so that Africa can gain its respect from the world. President Museveni has also complained bitterly that Africa was disregarded by the court," said Ndung’u.

In the last parliament there was a motion over the withdrawal which Ndung’u said would be revisited since it had not reached a logical conclusion.
