Kenya rights group accused official of interfering with ICC election investigation
Garrett Eisenhour at 12:00 AM ET

On November 12, 2010, the Kenyan National Commission on Human Rights (KNCHR) accused the country's former Cabinet Minister, William Ruto, of interfering with the International Criminal Court (ICC) investigation of 2007 post-election violence. The ICC had announced one month prior that it would present two cases against six individuals responsible for the post-election violence. In September 2010, a Kenyan business man challenged the legality of the ICC cases, claiming they were illegal under the then-recently ratified Kenyan constitution. The country's December 2007 presidential election left at least 1,000 people dead and displaced 500,000 after protests erupted over allegations of voter fraud.
