Prosecution Lineup in the Kenya Case
I don’t know very much about the individual prosecutors, but the lineup doesn’t exactly strike me as indicative of an anti-African, neo-colonialist international organization:
Ms Adesola Adeboyejo is to handle the Muthaura hearings for the Office of the Prosecutor.
Adeboyejo has worked at the International Criminal Court for Rwanda (ICTR) as a prosecutor and handled the case against Pauline Nyiramasukuko and the former commandant of the non-commissioned officers’ school in Butare, Colonel Tharacisse Mvunyi.
Based on her submissions and evidence before the ICTR case, the court slapped a 50 plus years jail sentence on Mvunyi.
Adeboyejo has also served as a legal officer at the ICC’s Office of Public Counsel for Victims.
She is to be assisted by prosecution counsel Adeboye Akingbolahan, Olivia Struyven, Desiree Lurf, Shamiso Mbivso, Ramu Bittaye, Arthur Siribu and Nawamaka Enjebe.
The ICC has many problems. Lack of diversity isn’t one of them.
