    Another Kenyan hague bound. Choices have consequences.

      Will be interesting to see if the Kenyan authorities arrest this individual as per Rome Statute

        This is indeed the litmus test for co-operation with ICC. Let’s watch

    Can the Kenya High court establish that there is enough evidence to haul Mr Walter Barasa to a foreign court? He is a Kenyan Citizen first and has rights under the 2010 constitution to be protect by the state. Yes he is a suspect but to a foreign court. Due prudence must be followed…..

      That is very true. He is a Kenyan citizen. Let that evidence be presented to the High Court in broad daylight and Barasa be allowed to defend himself.

    First fatal shot has been fired against guys contemptuous of ICC. This Barasa fellow will helplessly watch things go the wrong way. That he thought was secure in his designs is not in doubt at all. Charges faces our leaders are too grave to be treated with sort of hostility we are witnessing. A more friendly approach might have done the trick. However, imagining ICC is another Milimani commercial court, where bulldozing matters of the high and mighty is quite easy, is a very serious miscalculation indeed.

    Walter Barasa was an ‘intermediary’ hired by the ICC to locate witnesses and ensure their compliance. That role requires a lot of money in the form of inflated travel and accommodation expenses, as well as direct inducements to the witnesses.

    The pot and the kettle are about to meet in court. I hope that the process with not be in so-called ‘private sessions’.

      This whole saga is very fishy. Somehow it looks like the ICC is trying to shut him up by having him taken to the ICC. Let him be tried here so that we can hear all the evidence in broad daylight.

        The ICC will surely guarantee worldwide diffusion, rather than just Kenya, for him to defend himself and for others to air the accusations

    We must be careful not to take in everything that the OTP throws out there. Let us take some time to hear what Walter Barasa has to say. It is important to hear both sides of the story before passing judgement.
