International court summit to debate Kenyan cases

20 November 2013, 17:11

The Hague - The International Criminal Court's annual summit of member states is debating the court's relationship with Africa, which is under severe strain because of the prosecution of Kenya's president Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto.

The two are on trial for allegedly fronting violence in the aftermath of the 2007 general elections elections with  president Kenyatta due to go on trial in February on similar charges.

Both insist they are innocent.

The cases are progressing despite efforts by the African Union to halt them. Last week, the U.N. Security Council rejected a resolution calling for the Kenya cases to be deferred by a year.

Delegates agreed Wednesday to hold a special session Thursday on the African Union's proposal that sitting heads of state should not be prosecuted.
