Monday September 2, 2013 - The Chinese President, Xi Jinping, has strongly differed with United States and Britain over the trials of President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy, William Ruto, at the International Criminal Court (ICC).
In a statement to the ICC on Friday, the Chinese President said the Chinese people support the deferral of cases facing President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto to Nairobi, saying the country has a good judicial mechanism to prosecute cases of such magnitude.
When contacted on Sunday, the Chinese Embassy in Nairobi explained China’s position on the ICC cases against the two Kenyan leaders.
“The Chinese Government understands the concerns of the Kenyan Government over the ICC cases and supports efforts by the Kenyan Government to put these cases to an end,” Said Shifan Wu, a spokesperson of the Chinese Embassy in Nairobi said.
“We hope the ICC can fully respect Kenya’s judicial sovereignty.” The spokesman added.
This is a big reprieve to Uhuru and Ruto since China has veto power (One veto vote at the UN Security Council) and the cases can easily be deferred to Kenya.
USA and Britain had initially opposed the move and with China supporting it now it is up to the court to decide the venue.
