Practice Relating to Rule 161. International Cooperation in Criminal Proceedings
Kenya’s International Crimes Act (2008) was enacted to incorporate the 1998 ICC Statute into domestic law and “to enable Kenya to co-operate with the International Criminal Court established by the Rome Statute in the performance of its functions”.
In 2010, in its national report to the Human Rights Council, Working Group on the Universal Periodic Review, Kenya stated:
At the time of writing the report, the Government has agreed in principle to cooperate with [t]he International Criminal Court as efforts to establish a local mechanism to try perpetrators continue. The International Crimes Act , which also domesticates the Rome Statute, will largely facilitate this process.
