Luis Moreno Ocampo opens up!
Luis Moreno Ocampo gave The Hague Trials Kenya his first media interview on the Kenyan trials since leaving office at the International Criminal Court, where he held the position of chief prosecutor from 2003 to 2012. Questions were crowd-sourced from followers of THTK’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/TheHagueTria…) and the interview was produced by RNW. The interview took place on 22 January 2014 at a hotel in Amsterdam.
THTK offers Kenyans and other interested audiences an independent online forum to share their experiences, thoughts and questions about the three cases before the ICC relating to Kenya’s post-election violence of 2007-2008. THTK is a project of RNW (www.rnw.org) in partnership with This is Africa (http://www.thisisafrica.me).

In an interview with K24’s Apollo Kamau, Khan says Ocampo’s confessions now confirm a case gone wrong from the outset adding that an inquiry into the case involving assembly of state parties should begin.–here now are excerpts from that interview.
