EU issues warning over ICC Kenya process

The European Union has warned Kenya leaders against politicising the International Criminal Court process.The 13 EU envoys, at the same time, revealed that investors in their countries were keenly watching how the country will respond to ICC Prosecutor Mr Luis Moreno Ocampo’s move to name the suspected masterminds of the post election violence.Mr Moreno-Ocampo, who was in the country last week,  has promised to reveal the names of six individuals bearing the greatest responsibility for the chaos.At a news conference, British envoy to Kenya Mr Rob Macaire said if Kenyans responded to the ICC move ‘in the right way’ then it will open door for more investments in the country.“Investors are always wary of the political risk in the country...if the country responds in the right way then it will be good for investment,” he said.The envoys, led by the head of the EU delegation in Kenya Mr Eric Van Der Linden, said it was important that Kenyans avoid violence at this stage and maintain peace.
“Mr Moreno-Ocampo has categorically stated that he is not targeting communities...he is only going for individuals,” said Mr Van Der Linden in Nairobi moments after chairing a meeting of the envoys.“It is important that Kenyans avoid violence... they on the other hand must resist attempts by leaders to politicise or ethnicise the process.” His sentiments comes on the wake of allegations at the weekend that the ICC process was being used to lock out certain politicians from ascending to the Presidency in 2012.
