ICC prosecutor threatened Kenya suspects with arrest over ICC conditions
Katherine Bacher at 12:00 AM ET

On March 14, 2011, Chief Prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo for the International Criminal Court (ICC) warned six Kenyans suspected of inciting post-election uprisings in 2007-2008 to comply with the ICC's conditions, or face formal arrest. This warning followed a summons issued a week earlier for their appearance in an initial hearing before the court. The men were suspected of instigating violence, rape, and the destruction of property in the aftermath of Kenya's 2007 presidential elections. The disputed conditions prohibit the suspects from threatening or influencing any witnesses connected with the investigation.
