ICC takes on 2008 Kenya election violence

It remains a crying shame that the Republic of Kenya can't handle this prosecution itself, but given the seriousness of the crimes and the obviously high-level government involvement there really isn't much of a chance that a domestic prosecution could ever overcome the political pressures of this case. But that same seriousness and level of state involvement... and the toll, ~1,200 dead and ~350,000 forcibly displaced... has drawn in the International Criminal Court.

ICC Chief Prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo has called upon the six suspects to appear voluntarily before the investigation.

May justice be done.
