Via the Irish Times:
The prosecutor at the International Criminal Court (ICC) has refused to appear before the Kenyan High Court, despite being summonsed in a case aimed at revealing a secret list believed to have named those allegedly behind post-election violence in the country in 2007 and 2008.
Fatou Bensouda has written to the Kenyan ambassador to the Netherlands, Rose Muchiri, stating that she is “immune” from summons by the Kenyan judges, who have “no jurisdiction” over her personally, over her office or over the ICC as an international institution.
Of course, this is no surprise to us…
