The Star (Kenya) - - News -

The judges said de­spite the pas­sage of a fur­ther 18 months and notwith­stand­ing the Kenyan govern­ment’s con­tin­u­ing statu­tory obli­ga­tion to com­ply with any co­op­er­a­tion re­quest from the ICC, it ap­pears no fur­ther progress has been made in im­ple­ment­ing the Prose­cu­tor’s re­quest. They said the govern­ment failed to take all rea­son­able steps to ex­e­cute a re­quest for co­op­er­a­tion from the court, in­clud­ing by not pro­vid­ing clear, rel­e­vant and timely re­sponses. “... or tak­ing any mean­ing­ful steps to com­pel pro­duc­tion of re­quested in­for­ma­tion. Ac­cord­ing to the Cham­ber, the non­co­op­er­a­tion has pre­vented the court from ex­er­cis­ing its func­tions and pow­ers un­der the Statute,” the judges said.
