Kenya still pushing for deferral of ICC cases

01 November 2013, 11:25

Nairobi - The delay of the trial for President Uhuru Kenyatta will not stop Kenya from campaigning for the deferral of the cases at the International Criminal Court (ICC).

Macharia Kamau, Kenya’s representative to the permanent UN Mission, said Kenya had asked the ICC to suspend the proceedings until the Security Council  decides on the cases, Daily Nation reports.

Kenyatta’s trial was to start on November 12 but judges at the ICC postponed to February 5, 2014.

It was the latest setback in attempts to try President Kenyatta. His trial was earlier scheduled to start July 9, 2013, but was pushed back to give defense lawyers more time to prepare.

“Kenya's forgotten victims of post-election violence complain after @UKenyatta trial is postponed for 3rd time#ICC,” tweeted @howden_africa.

The African Union wants the cases dropped or be suspended until President Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto are out of office.
