[In the News] Ocampo's Kenya visit comes to an end

ICC Prosecutor Ocampo ends his investigatory visit into Kenya's 2007-2008 post-election violence with a meeting with the current President, Mwai Kibaki. During his five days Ocampo spent time with many victims, particularly in the slums and countryside where the violence was concentrated. He has stated that he will pursue the worst perpetrators on both sides of the violent conflict, up to a total of six individuals, and hopes to present his cases against them to the Court late this year. This process will be aided by Kenya's vow to protect the victims and witnesses of the violence during a meeting Ocampo held with the Cabinet.
