Some have come forward suggesting that this refusal is an example of top officials attempting to sabotage the investigation. It has been reported that they are also trying to sabotage the ICC's involvement by insinuating that the Court has targeted ethnic groups. On Friday a number of MPs from the Party of National Unity (PNU) stated that the ICC investigations had unfairly targeted the Kikuyu ethnic group as the perpetrators of the post-election violence. These remarks have subsequently been recognized as 'hollow', and have been called 'irresponsible' in light of the ethnic component of the post-election crimes.
In other news, Judge Richard Goldstone has publicly stated that the often invoked criticism that the ICC targets Africa is 'unfair'. He argued that the ICC is a court of last resort that is often self-referred by African states, which creates an unfair perception that the ICC picks on Africa. Photo credit: Daily Nation.
