Kenya: ICC Membership (Taken Question)

Taken Question
Washington, DC
September 5, 2013


Question: What is the U.S. position on the Kenyan vote to remove itself from the ICC?

Answer: The United States is dedicated to supporting the rule of law and working to ensure accountability for crimes against humanity. We urge the government of Kenya to fulfill its commitments to seek justice for the victims of the 2007-2008 post-election violence. In that regard, we note President Kenyatta’s recent statements affirming his commitment to ensure that Kenya meets its international obligations as a party to the Rome Statute.
