salve geneva;”>Kenyatta is being accused of orchestrating violence after the 2007 election, an allegation he denies. He was initially set to appear before ICC on July 9.

On 26 April 2013, the Trial Chamber determined that the Defence should be granted additional time to prepare for trial due to the delays by the Prosecution in disclosing its evidence.

The Trial Chamber invited the Defence to submit observations as to the estimated time it needed to adequately prepare for trial.

After receiving these observations, and responses from the Prosecution and the Legal Representative of Victims, the Judges decided to formally vacate the 9 July 2013 date scheduled for the trial’s opening.

Kenyatta is charged, as an indirect co-perpetrator, with five counts of crimes against humanity consisting of murder, deportation or forcible transfer, rape, persecution and other inhumane acts allegedly committed during the post-election violence in Kenya in 2007-2008.
