It is pointless for Gema to petition the ICC to postpone its case against Deputy PM Uhuru Kenyatta. ICC spokesman Fadi Abdalla has said said only the prosecution, the defence and the victims' representatives can argue for postponement of a case in the ICC calendar. And even then, the judges have the final word. “Aside from the parties to the cases, any other submission has no effect on the proceedings. Such decisions cannot be taken based on political considerations but rest strictly on legal ones,” says Abdalla.
