Today, Friday 5 December 2014, the Office of the Prosecutor (‘OTP’) of the International Criminal Court (‘ICC’) officially withdrew the charges against the President of the Republic of Kenya, Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta.

In its ‘Notice of withdrawal of the charges against Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta’, Fatou Bensouda stated:

In light of the Trial Chamber’s 3 December 2014 “Decision on Prosecution’s application for a further adjournment”, the Prosecution withdraws the charges against Mr Kenyatta.

 

The evidence has not improved to such an extent that Mr Kenyatta’s alleged criminal responsibility can be proven beyond reasonable doubt. For this reason, and in light of the Trial Chamber’s rejection of the Prosecution’s request for an adjournment until the Government of Kenya complies with its co-operation obligations under the Rome Statute, the Prosecution withdraws its charges.

 

As noted by the Trial Chamber, this withdrawal is without prejudice to the possibility of bringing new charges against Mr Kenyatta “at a later date, based on the same or similar factual circumstances, should [the Prosecution] obtain sufficient evidence to support such a course of action”.’

The OTP issued its withdrawal in light of ICC Trial Chamber V(B)’s (‘Chamber’) recent decision rejecting the OTP’s request for a further adjournment of the case. In its 3 December 2014 decision, the Chamber directed “the Prosecution to file a notice, within one week of this decision, indicating either (i) its withdrawal of the charges in this case; or (ii) that the evidentiary basis has improved to a degree which would justify proceeding to trial.”

    一年間に国内で生産された付加価値の合計をさす。Grossとは減価償却などの固定資本減耗を含めた値、という意味で国内純生産と区別される。日本では、内閣府経済社会総合研究所が作成、公表している。「市場価格を基準」とするので、客観的測定が困難なものは加算対象としない。たとえば、公害による被害、主婦の家事労働などはGDPにふくまれない。「一年間に国内で…」とは、その国内で行われた生産活動を対象にすることを意味するつまり、海外企業の在日支店の生産活動も日本のGDP算出対象となる。一方、日本人アーティストが一週間、海外コンサートであげた収益は、日本のGDPには含まない。一方国民総生産というときは国内居住者による生産活動を対とする。つまり国内企業の海外支店での生産活動が含まれる。これが「GDP」と「GNP」に乖離が生じる要因となる。なお現在では国民総生産GNPという概念は使われず、国民総所得GNIとして計算されている。
