Plea for Kenyatta video trial

Kenya repeated demands on Wednesday for the crimes against humanity trial of President Uhuru Kenyatta at the International Criminal Court (ICC) be held via video link. “There is a request that has been put before the court for the President to be allowed to attend some of the sessions via video link,” Foreign Minister Amina Mohamed told reporters. “We are still waiting for a decision to be made on that.” The comments, made alongside remarks that circumstances became “completely different” after Mr. Kenyatta was elected in March, are seen as raising pressure on the ICC, and come ahead of a meeting of African leaders beginning Friday to debate a possible withdrawal from The Hague-based court. — AFP
