Uhuru arrives in the Netherlands ahead of ICC hearing

07 October 2014, 19:00 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta has arrived in the Netherlands ahead of his hearing at the Hague based International Criminal Court ICC.

The president arrived in the Netherlands just after 5.30 PM Kenyan time where he was met by a small delegation of MPs and Kenyans who had already travelled to the Netherlands.

He left the country Tuesday morning and travelled as a 'citizen' on a Kenya Airways flight to Amsterdam, accompanied by his wife Margaret, daughter Ngina, MPs and three cabinet secretaries.

His arrival was not met with the usual pomp associated for a president but the ICC promised to hand him VIP treatment during his stay in the country.

Kenyatta will attend a status conference at the ICC Wednesday where he is expected to answer to charges that the government is frustrating efforts by the chief prosecutor Fatou Bensouda to access vital information on his phone records as well as other important details.

"The Kenyan government is not going to give us what we are asking for and what the chamber has approved of (us) asking for," senior prosecutor Ben Gumpert said in a Status Conference Tuesday.

"The only conclusion to be drawn is that if the court is satisfied that our arguments are right it should make a finding of non-compliance on the part of the government of Kenya," Gumpert said.

However, Attorney General Githu Muigai countered the claims, saying that it was up to the prosecutor and not Kenya to probe and provide vital leads.

"It is up to the prosecutor to say what she wants then we provide. It cannot work any other way, he complained at the Conference.

Bensouda is seeking an indefinite postponement of the case, saying Kenya has refused to cooperate with a request for financial, tax and phone records.

The prosecution hopes the documents will shed light on his possible involvement in the 2008 Post Election Violence.
