The plain truth is that Bensouda inherited a poorly investigated prosecution. I can bet, Ocampo took a deep breath when he passed on the baton to Bensouda. He knew right from the outset that the evidence was insufficient to sustain the case but he had to play the tune to please the financiers. The media made him a hero, unfortunately he failed miserably to fix the ‘big catch’ he had promised the world. On the other hand, the bench has handled the matter with a great sense of professionalism and balance despite the fact that all Kenyan cases did not the meet the minimum threshold for confirmation. Soon it will be the hunted turning the heat on the hunter. ICC on trial.
While knowing that her evidence threshold was below standards, she kept on hanging on certain personalities who promised her water-tight evidence if they ascend to power. Politics of the day is that these cases were and are still political. What a buff!
