The International Criminal Court has dismissed claims of conducting investigations in the country with the aim of reviving the 2007/08 post-election violence cases.

“The Office of the Prosecutor cannot comment on speculation,” states Fatou Bensouda in an email to the Nation.

On whether the government is cooperating with The Hague in gathering new evidence, Bensouda’s office told the local daily that it is open to any individual or body to furnish it with fresh information.

“As a general matter, in accordance with article 15 of the Rome Statute — the founding treaty of the ICC — any individual or group from anywhere in the world may send information on alleged crimes to the ICC Prosecutor, who is duty-bound to protect the confidentiality of the information received,” she said as reported by Daily Nation.

In 2018 the court told the United Nations General Assembly that the investigations in the case were still going on.

“The office of the prosecutor continued to receive information on the commission of crimes against humanity during the post-election violence of 2007/08,” the ICC.

Ruto’s allies have reintroduced The Hague narrative to rally their support base as they prepare for 2022 polls.

Soy MP Caleb Kositany said there are ongoing investigations in the Rift Valley related to the 2007-08 chaos.

“They sent four officers here from Nairobi to collect all the 2007-08 post-election violence files. People also died in Naivasha and there were also clashes in Mombasa, Nairobi, and Kisumu; why only files from Eldoret?” the MP posed.

Early in the year, in an interview with NTV DP Ruto also claimed that a “cabal that went out of its way” to try and stop him and President Uhuru Kenyatta from ascending to power in 2013 was now plotting to block him from the 2022 polls.

“As of last year, I was having a discussion with the Director-General of NIS (National Intelligence Service), Philip Kameru, and I learned that there are people who are ready to come and open the ICC cases,” Ruto said.
