Kenyatta Defence Publishes Report: ‘The Prosecution of Uhuru Kenyatta at the International Criminal Court’



Download the full Kenyatta Defence report, ‘The Prosecution of Uhuru Kenyatta at the International Criminal Court’:

On 19 January 2015, the ICC Prosecution published a public redacted version of its Pre-Trial Brief (‘PTB’) in its now-defunct case against Uhuru Kenyatta. As predicted by the Kenyatta Defence, and as a result of the Prosecution’s purposeful misrepresentation of the evidence underlying the allegations in the PTB, the document was misunderstood by the media and lead to the publication of defamatory statements concerning Mr Kenyatta. It matters not to the Prosecutor, who has chosen not to issue one of her infamous video speeches to explain the context in which the PTB was released, that the allegations contained therein rely almost exclusively on the evidence of witnesses who have admitted to lying and were withdrawn by the Prosecution. The PTB sets out a failed case based upon lying witnesses; it is a document that has neither credibility nor currency.

The Kenyatta Defence has today published a report examining the key aspects of the failed ICC proceedings against Mr Kenyatta. The document focuses on the nature of the evidence that was proved by the Defence to be false and the exposure of which eventually caused the case to fail.

The report concludes by stating that the ‘proceedings at the ICC against Uhuru Kenyatta represented a miscarriage of justice. Rights to ensure fairness by the Prosecution towards an accused that would have been expected in any jurisdiction were plainly not employed in his case. The failure to check credibility of witnesses, wilful blindness to obvious fabrication of stories by witnesses in the pursuit of a case, represented an unreasonable campaign to prosecute an individual at all costs.

The impact of such conduct upon an individual’s private and public life cannot be easily dismissed. Such prosecutorial conduct would be considered in most reasonable jurisdictions to have been a gross abuse of power. The ICC structure that even permitted counsel for the victims to make representations to continue the proceedings notwithstanding the admission of insufficiency of evidence by the Prosecutor reflects a system that pays little attention to the validity of the case but more to the image that it is pursuing campaigns against impunity. The irony that Uhuru Kenyatta was subject in these proceedings to nothing less than a prosecutorial impunity is clear and obvious.

    First of all I want to say great blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.

    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before
    writing. I’ve had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
    I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15
    minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips?
    Many thanks!
