Kenya’s prosecutor assures on PEV probe

10 May 2012, 15:29

Nairobi - Human Rights groups in Kenya are questioning whether a task force set up by the Director of Public Prosecutions, DPP, to review criminal cases stemming from post-election violence in 2007 and 2008 will deliver justice.

Capital News reports that they are concerned that the multi-agency taskforce could serve as a smokescreen for continuing inaction, as it is unclear whether the force will be able to ensure allegations against Kenyan police are properly dealt with.

According to a December 2011 report by the advocacy group Human Rights Watch, only six cases have so far resulted in convictions in the Kenyan courts, following the 2007-2008 PEV that left 1,333 people dead and 350,000 displaced.
