Speaking to journalist yesterday after the court adjourned at 18.30, Ocampo told waiting journalists that he was confident that the case will go to a full trial.
API asked Ocampo why he has not been attending the proceedings. He excused himself that had a lot to do. When asked whether he was hiding so that if the case is defeated he saves his face by putting the blame on his juniors who presented the case, Ocampo argued that the reason he was not in court to present the case himself was because he had other cases.
However, API does not think that is the case. Ocampo knows well that his evidence is not strong and the best thing for him is to let his prosecutors present the cases so that if things go wrong he will turn around and pass over the blame to someone else.
Ocampo has been vocal in the Kenyan case, and there is no reason why he should not have been in the court himself. Experts API spoke to say they are waiting to see if he will present the case against Uhuru Kenyatta, Francis Muthaura and Hussein Ali starting on te 21st of September 2011, or if he will apply the same tactic as he just did with this case.
