Kenyan politicians will face trial

By the Daily Nation

As Kenyan politicians resist moves to pay taxes, the International Criminal Court has warned that it will take over the cases of the names contained in a secret envelope handed to Kofi Annan.

Prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo said if Kenya failed to try the suspects of post-election violence, then the court will move in to start investigations and prosecute those involved.

If the Government starts the implementation process from tomorrow, it has up to February 28 to enact the laws and form a local tribunal. However, if it fails to start the process, the envelope will automatically be handed over to the ICC on March 1 – the end of the 135-day timetable contained in the Waki report.
