ICC summons “Ocampo Six” – End of impunity?

written by Katharina Nett and Iris Föllner

Last week, written summonses issued by the International Criminal Court (ICC) have been delivered to the suspects of 2007/08 post-election vio-lence (PEV) in Kenya. In December 2010, ICC Prosecutor Luis Moreno Ocampo had made a request for summoning those personalities he believed to be most responsible for the committed crimes against humanity, widely known as the “Ocampo Six”. The way in which Kenya handles the ICC case is not only decisive for future relationship with her Western allies, but also a very important test of her will to scatter impunity.

Kenya’s New Constitution: a Transforming Document or Less than Meets the Eye?

The Kenyans endorsed a new Constitution in a referendum on the 4th of August. This Constitution is claimed to be the most important political development since independence from Great Britain in 1963. Since the introduction of the Independence Constitution, which led to the formation of the new State, no comprehensive constitutional reform has taken place. As the Independence Constitution was drafted through negotiations with the colonial power this is the first reform which detaches the Constitution from its colonial origin and puts it on a new basis.
