Bensouda not humiliated by Uhuru
01 April 2015, 13:51
Nairobi - ICC chief Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda was not embarrassed by her defeat in prosecuting president Uhuru Kenyatta, she says in a report on the African Review.
Bensouda made the claim during an appearance on the Interview Show on France 24 TV, where she said that the Uhuru case was a matter of failing to get enough evidence and not complete failure on her part.
She also insisted that she would not hesitate to open new proceedings against the president as soon as she lands new evidence, which she says she is still searching for.
The ICC announced its decision to formally drop charges
against Uhuru three weeks ago, but left the doors open for a
case in future.
President Kenyatta was accused of crimes against humanity in connection with the 2007 post-election violence but the Hague-based court withdrew charges against him in November 2014 due to lack of evidence.
His deputy William Ruto and former radio journalist Joshua Sang are still under ICC scrutiny.
