ICC again delays Uhuru trial

19 September 2014, 21:34

The Hague - The International Criminal Court has again delayed the trial of Kenya's president, after prosecutors said they did not have a strong enough case to convict him because Kenya was not cooperating in turning over potential evidence.

The court announced Friday it was scrapping the planned Oct. 7 start of Uhuru Kenyatta's trial on charges of involvement in violence that left more than 1,000 people dead after his country's 2007 elections.

Kenyatta is charged as an "indirect co-perpetrator" with crimes including murder, rape and persecution. He insists he is innocent and his lawyers have called repeatedly for the case to be dropped for lack of evidence.

His trial was scheduled to start Feb. 5, but was postponed until October while prosecutors attempted to shore up their case.
