ICC in the Media, Update #46

This week the International Criminal Court has appeared in a variety of news stories. Recently ICC judges approved the Prosecutor's application to open an official investigation into the Ivory Coast post-election violence that occurred in late 2010. The judges provided Ocampo with instructions to investigate crimes committed between 2002-2010, and to report back with his findings in a month's time. Reportedly, 3000 people were killed in the violence and at least 100 individuals were raped. In the Kenya case, the second set of ICC confirmation of charges hearings continue at the Hague. Last week we mentioned that suspect Uhuru Kenyatta took the witness stand, as depicted in the following video.
