ICC's Bensouda says ready for 'legal debate' with African Union - Daily Observer

International Criminal Court Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda has said she is ready for a legal debate with the African Union over the cases facing Kenya President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto.

Ms Bensouda Thursday denied the AU’s assertions that the court has been targeting only African leaders. She maintained that justice to millions of victims of crimes against humanity would only be achieved through judicial channels and not by "political bodies".
"This is a judicial process, the outcome of which is independently decided by judges. The Office of the Prosecutor stands ready to engage in any legal debate regarding its on-going cases in Kenya," she said.
