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.

No need of raising this issue now any body who contributed in post election violence will be accountable for his/ her deeds one day whether here or the hereafter.

So Mbuthi Gathenji was a Hyena clothed in Sheep's skin. It may seem like Uhuru, Ruto and all those who were charged with PEV crimes may have gotten away with it but one day, justice shall be served and all those who were involved in killing the innocent people will harvest what they sowed!

An interesting insight, but the ship is so sailed now. The mistake the office of the prosecutor did was by trusting persons with a delicate process whose interest wasn't justice for the victims but to make a kill out of the process.

I doubt that there is anything that the OTP would have found and not disclosed to the defense unless of course, the suggestion is that the lawyer assisted the defense to prepare for what the OTP was investigating, which is a different matter. Brilliant analysis however, well done.

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.

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.

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.

Fair analysis of the issues. At least the author has made efforts to extrapolate the issues from a Kenya perspective. Bensouda and Ocampo failed hence the mistrial.

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.

I can't dispute all being said of the behavior of the Kenyan delegation. Most of Kenyan politicians have always been a disappointment to us as a country engaging blindly on issues....

Ours truly is a petulant vindictive leadership...rudderless at best. It was supposed to be a "personal challenge" during campaigns for the big 2 offices (in retrospect, thanks to our spineless AG, CJ and Judiciary, these big 2 should never have been on the ballot in the first place ). Now it has become the cornerstone of our so called "foreign policy". Our Foreign Minister is but a glorified tea girl

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.
