Kenya asked to boost witnesses’ security
11 January 2012, 12:51
The government has been urged to strengthen its witness
protection programme and urgently prosecute lesser perpetrators of the
2008 post-election violence as the country gears up for The Hague ruling
on the Ocampo Six.
The Africa Crisis Group, an international lobby,
has warned that the ruling, expected in less than 10 days, will see
fresh political alliances emerge and stir animosities just a few months
to the next election.
As the Belgium-based group called on the government
to prepare for the International Criminal Court (ICC) verdict, which
could be announced either next Monday or Thursday, it urged the
international community to help ensure Kenya did not see a reversal of
the gains it had achieved so far.
