NAIROBI (Reuters) - International Criminal Court chief prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo said on Thursday he believed crimes against humanity had been committed during Kenya's 2008 post-election violence and he wanted to open an investigation.
"I explained to them that I consider the crimes committed in Kenya were crimes against humanity, therefore the gravity is there. So therefore I should proceed," he told a joint news conference with President Mwai Kibaki and Prime Minister Raila Odinga.
"So I informed them, in December I would request to the judges of the International Criminal Court to open an investigation and that is the process established by the Rome Treaty," he said.
