Forensic Linguistics Institute – Statement Concerning the Dropping of the Charges in the Kenyatta Case


Click here  to read the statement of Dr John Olsson, an expert appointed by the ICC in the Kenyatta case and instructed by Steven Kay QC and Gary Summers. Dr Olsson analysed statements from various witnesses “purporting to implicate Mr Kenyatta in the post election violence”. Dr Olsson analysed more than 50 Prosecution documents and drafted an expert report which President Kenyatta’s defence team disclosed to the Prosecution. Dr Olsson concluded that the 50 documents – which were analysed using comparisons of vocabulary, grammar and idiom – “showed signs of fabrication and common authorship, with indications of a disguised style of language use”.
