9BRi Defence for Uhuru Kenyatta Speaks to the Independent on Sunday


On 15 February 2015, the Independent on Sunday (IoS) published a feature entitled ‘ICC damned as “amateur” by British lawyers for acquitted Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta’.

The report claimed that the ‘competence of the international court set up to try world leaders for crimes against humanity was questioned yesterday by lawyers for its highest-ranking African target in a damning critique of the way it carried out investigations.’

The IoS went on to add that ‘[i]nquiries by the International Criminal Court (ICC) were amateur and unprofessional, according to the British lawyers for Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta, who was cleared of crimes against humanity, including rape and murder, last year. Evidence seen by The Independent on Sunday showed that a key prosecution witness was probably not at a meeting where he claimed he saw the politician handing out cash to pay criminal groups to attack political opponents.’
