Former ICTY Judge : Victims in the Kenyan ICC cases got a raw deal

Judge Koffi Kumelio A. Afande,
Tuesday, February 6, 2018 - 07:37

Judge Koffi Kumelio A. Afande, who has served on both the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY), and the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) has given a damning appraisal of the outcome of the Kenyan cases at the International Criminal Court (ICC) for the victims, particularly on reparations. It is rare to hear a judge of Afande’s stature speak so frankly of the shortcomings the international criminal justice system.

Lawyers and the witness disarray in the Kenya ICC cases

Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta
Thursday, September 29, 2016 - 11:00

They came, they spied, and they conquered! No sooner had the soil dried up on the mass grave resulting from the termination of the Kenyan cases than the pieces of the mysterious Hague trials began to come together. The role played by some of the who’s who in the legal fraternity, some of whom were involved in the pre-ICC investigations into the violence, is particularly intriguing.

The day ICC will go after western perpetrators of world impunity, the likes of Blair & Bush, then count me and many others to believe their existence. It was upon them to do their work & not to be spoon fed with evidence!

Why are ICC judges ‘punishing’ Kenyan victims for their cooperation?

Dissenting ICC judge, Chile Eboe-Osuji
Tuesday, July 19, 2016 - 09:41

When the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court indicted six Kenyans, he promised the victims and the world that Kenya would be an example on how to manage elections, avoid mass atrocities and ensure justice for the victims. But the Court has delivered on none of the above. Instead, the eight-year wait for justice through convictions and/or reparation appears to have been in vain.

Thanks Maina for your commentary. My post in response looks at the issue of managing victim expectations. Check link:

Controlling the Narrative — Who Will Prosecute Witness Interference in the ICC Kenya cases?

Courtside Justice with Mark Kersten
Thursday, April 28, 2016 - 06:53

There have been reports of widespread relief among staff of the International Criminal Court (ICC) that their long-running and dramatic political run-in with Kenya was finally a thing of the past following the recent collapse of the last cases relating to the 2007/08 post-election violence. But the fight over three outstanding warrants of arrest — for three Kenyan citizens wanted by the Court on charges of obstructing justice and intimidating witnesses — suggests that the battle between Nairobi and The Hague isn’t over just yet.

There isn't an iota of narrative Kenya is trying to control. To think that someone sitting behind a laptop screen with free wifi, brewed coffee and miles away from Kenyan soil can convince his mind that they understand the Kenyan story is absolute hogwash.

The foul attempt to use recanted evidence retroactively was legal mischief at its best. That failed, terribly! Arrest warrants for three private citizens is least of the Kenyan worries. Even Lady Luck would laugh off at the possibility of a revived ICC trial. It cannot happen. It will not happen.

With all due respect, tell it to the birds Sir!

A missed trial in The Hague or a mistrial? The end of the ICC cases against Ruto and Sang

Courtside Justice with Mark Kersten
Wednesday, April 6, 2016 - 08:13

It’s over. Almost six years after the International Criminal Court (ICC) intervened to investigate those responsible for the 2007-08 post-election violence in Kenya, everyone of the Court’s targets has escaped judgement day.

Social media uproar after ICC Appeals Chamber hands down judgment on Rule 68

ICC Judge Piotr Hofmanski reading out judgment
Monday, February 15, 2016 - 15:43

It had been months in the making, but last Monday the International Criminal Court announced that it would deliver its judgment on the highly-contested application of Rule 68 in the case against Kenyan Deputy President William Ruto and journalist Joshua arap Sang. Four days of wild speculation, predictions and ifs followed until the judgment was handed down Friday afternoon.

Kenya gambled and lost at the ICC’s yearly conference - but it’s not game over yet

Courtside Justice with Mark Kersten
Thursday, December 3, 2015 - 07:34

The African Group for Justice and Accountability (AGJA) had just been launched at one of the dozens of Assembly of States Parties (ASP) side events. There were a few minutes left and so, as the moderator of the event, I opened the session up for a public Q & A. A man seated near the front of the packed room introduced himself as the senate leader from Kenya and asked the panelists to discuss the International Criminal Court’s alleged double standards towards African states.

My country has always acted foolishly over the ICC as if 1300 innocent Kenyans were not murdered as well as over 500,000 were displaced as refugees and IDPs. Our current leadership is shameful and shameless. Amb. Amina has perfected the art of being an errand girl that a diplomat.

Why is the Kenya situation at the ICC?

Why is Kenya at the ICC?
Thursday, November 5, 2015 - 08:21

The next in our series of long-form infocomics about the situations at the International Criminal Court. In late December 2007, violence broke out in Kenya following a disputed election. Over 1100 people were killed and more than 600,000 were displaced in a two-month period.

The ICC is just court that we lost faith in long time ago.Why do they want to use witnesses who recanted ?Bensouda you will be cursed by the continent for betraying it.If you are duped to thinking that the court wants to bringing justice in Africa,why is it that even the people who are pushing for the cases to continue exited ?If they have faith in it they would still be its member.Its the case of preaching water and you take wine.Africa should exit that thing called ICC and form their own court.
