    Shalom, the Kenyan courts can try Baraza, giving him to ICC over a matter that can be sorted locally will make our judicial system look bad. We hope not. This is why the Africans feel a kind of selective application of ICC approach to issues.

      But Kenyans never raised a finger about his illegal activities before ICC checked in? Kenyan state is an interested party in this Barasa fellow case. Thats given the fact that top Kenyan leaders are suspects at ICC. In such circumstances, if Barasa is not handed over, it will only mean accused Kenyan leadership is not co-operating with ICC. That can work against their interests at ICC. These other guys who are making unnecessary noise, dont understand none of two topmost leaders went through court motions in the first place. African leaders are only concerned about themselves and not citizens of Africa. Self serving enterprise wont take them anywhere at all.

    You hand this case over to the Kenyan court it will take 99 years for the matter to be heard in court. ICC has the evidence against Barasa and under Artile 70, ICC has the authority and obligation to try those who intimidate or bribe witnesses. The witnesses themselves have to testify about attempts by Barasa and his masters to bribe and intimidate them. If the witnesses cannot even be shown and their voices have to be masked when they are testifying at The Hague to keep them safe from vengefull elements working the accused persons who want them dead, how in hell will they testify against Barasa in Kenyan courts. Will they be locked up incased in armoured vehicles while in court?

    Well, the AG did warn the OTP that this would be a lengthy legal process. If there ever will be a next time, the OTP should learn to never outsource its own work!!!

    “Barasa has already denied Bensouda’s accusations, saying that her office is trying to use the arrest order to settle personal scores.”

    Enough said!
