The International Criminal Court is set to hold a conference on the way forward regarding President Uhuru Kenyatta’s case.

The status conference is set to be held on 5 February, the same day Mr. Kenyatta’s case was meant to commence, however it has since been postponed indefinitely.

Judges announced yesterday, stating, “To facilitate the fair and expeditious conduct of proceedings, the Chamber considers it appropriate to convene a status conference, pursuant to Rule 132(2) of the rules, to discuss the issues raised by the parties in relation to the prosecution request and the defence response, to be held on Wednesday, 5 February 2014”, via Capital FM.

ICC Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda previously voiced her fears that she needed more time to formulate her case, given the serious loss of witnesses and evidence to substantiate the courts’ accusations against President Uhuru.

The conference intends to provide clarity on the way forward for the case, as well as address whether the case will even continue in the future.
