Public officials in ICC cases face uncertain future
17 January 2012, 13:58
Nairobi – Members of the civil society have now vowed
to ensure they pressurise government officials named by the
International Criminal Court (ICC) Prosecutor Luis Moreno Ocampo as
masterminds of the post election violence to resign, if crimes against
humanity which they’re facing are confirmed.
Some of the rights groups say the officials should have quit office
immediately their names appeared in the list of suspects facing charges
at the war crimes court earlier last year.
“It is not a matter of whether they should or should not resign… in
any case, they are in office illegally. These are people who should have
stepped aside immediately their names appeared in the Ocampo list,” the
Executive Director of the International Centre for Policy and Conflict
(ICPC) Ndung’u Wainaina said.
