What you need to know:

  • Contents of the leaked documents paint a picture of Mr Ocampo more of a hatchet man rather than the boisterous, independent prosecutor many came to believe.
  • High-profile figures including President Kenyatta, Deputy President William Ruto, former Commissioner of Police Hussein Ali, former Head of Public Service Francis Muthaura and former Cabinet Minister Henry Kosgey were indicted during his tenure.
  • It was also during Mr Ocampo’s era that the ICC issued warrants of arrest against Sudan President Omar al Bashir.

Former prosecutor at the International Criminal Court (ICC) Luis Moreno Ocampo is back on the spot for his alleged behind-the-scenes manoeuvres to help high profile suspects escape trial.
