PEV victims opposed to deferral of ICC cases

05 November 2013, 09:31

Nairobi - Post election violence victims want the UN Security to reject attempts by Kenya and the African Union to defer cases facing President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto at The Hague.

The 20,000 victims gave 11 reasons as to why they are opposed to the deferral of the cases, Daily Nation reports.

Some of the reasons for their opposition are that many more victims will die before seeing justice if the trials are delayed for five or ten years.

They also fear that more witnesses will pull out of the cases if they are delayed and dismissed claims that there are reforms in Kenya’s judiciary, arguing that the government has not shown any interest in dealing with the cases.

Earlier on, former Prime Minister Raila Odinga lashed out at the AU over its stand on the cases. He said the AU should not be involved in finding a solution to the cases since Kenyans took themselves to The Hague.

Amnesty International also criticized the AU’S declaration that senior government officials should not appear before the International Criminal Court (ICC) and their call for deferral of the cases.
