Statement by the Office of the Prosecutor

The Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC), today issued the following statement relating to the situation in the Republic of Kenya:

The Office of the Prosecutor deplores the recent stream of sensationalist reports in the Kenyan media, on the level of witness cooperation. Witness protection remains one of our highest priorities. The  Office will therefore not be drawn into any public speculation on the status of witnesses.  The courage and integrity of witnesses are essential to the Court’s determination of the truth, which is at the heart of justice. It is in the interest of all concerned to allow justice to take its course.”
