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!

Witnesses are the ICC's Achilles heel

New court room at the International Criminal Court
Friday, September 23, 2016 - 11:55

Without the testimony of witnesses, trials at the International Criminal Court (ICC) and the tribunals could not take place. However, the essential role of witnesses makes the courts dependent and vulnerable. JusticeHub looks at the phenomenon of witness interference which has been plaguing the global justice system.

What’s the point of the ICC OTP's Basic Size document?

Wednesday, January 27, 2016 - 08:22

The International Criminal Court faces difficult decisions regarding which cases it takes on. The former prosecutor, Luis Moreno Ocampo, was in favour of multiplying activities in order to increase the impact of the Court. Fatou Bensouda has adopted a different approach, trying to balance the quantity and quality of the work, carefully expanding the number of investigations.. Justice Hub spoke to Michel de Smedt, the ICC's Head of Investigations about these issues.

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.

Add to this discussion.The former premier should be held responsible for calling for mass action, before public education on what mass action is and how it works or should be done.

The ICC was just there to control Kenya election in favor of raila omolo odinga... We even see all those people who were in those organizations coaching witnesses are all in railas party and others are his followers... No one seems to care about what part he played in 2007/2008 violence... Nothing historical could have raisen if he didn't talk mass distribution...

Would you come to testify at the ICC?

Wednesday, July 16, 2014 - 10:05

Last week, three men were sent back to the Democratic Republic of Congo after testifying at the International Criminal Court and applying for asylum in The Netherlands.

Is there a good enough system in place to protect witnesses who come to the ICC?
