ICC investigations threatened by budget crisis

25 November 2013, 23:08

Nairobi - The trials of President Uhuru Kenyatta, his deputy William Ruto and Joshua Arap Sang have been thrown into jeopardy as it has emerged that the International Criminal Court (ICC) is running out of money, reports the Nation.

The trio are facing charges of crimes against humanity, for the parts they played in the violence that marred the 2007 elections in the country. According to a source at the ICC , the current figure for the budget is KES 12.6 billion, which is insufficient for the prosecutors to conduct thorough investigations.

It was reported earlier this month that  67 percent of a 2,060 people surveyed think that President Kenyatta should attend his trial. However the African Union and members of Kenya's parliament believe that if Kenyatta and Ruto are tried at the ICC, the country will be thrown into turmoil without proper leadership.
