Nairobi - The International Criminal Court Prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda, has asked for help from the Kenyan government to identify money, property, and other assets of four Kenyans facing trial at The Hague.
According to The Standard, under Kenyan law, it is Attorney General Githu Muigai, as the chief legal adviser to the Government, who must authorize State assistance in profiling what the suspects own and their bank accounts.
Bensouda’s request is catered for under Article 93 1(k) of the Rome Statute, that binds the Government to help the ICC Prosecutor, upon request, to identify, trace, and freeze or seize proceeds, property, and assets of the accused.
