The International Criminal Court is closely watching Kenya and will not hesitate to pounce if crimes are committed in the run-up or after the next election, its Chief Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda has warned. Speaking for the first time since the last of the Kenya crimes against humanity cases at the ICC collapsed in April, Ms Bensouda said the court had learnt important lessons and would seek to do things differently.She said just because the Prosecutor had “a bad experience” in Kenya, the court will not turn the other way in case of new crimes against humanity.“I am not praying for bad things to happen, but if ICC crimes are committed, and Kenya does not attempt to try those cases, the court will do its duty and discharge its obligation under the Rome Statute,” she said.
