After Kenya ICC Draft Circulated by Africans, Another Gives to BBC

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, November 3 -- On the African Union's draft UN Security Council resolution to defer the International Criminal Court's Kenya proceedings one year, Inner City Press midday on November 1 reported that it would be circulated later on Friday.

   It was, past 7 pm on Friday, as Inner City Press tweeted and added to its first story: 17 preambular paragraphs and four operative paragraphs, sponsored by Morocco, Rwanda and Togo.

  Now on Sunday evening BBC in The Hague has published, on twitter, photographs of portions but not all of the resolution, as well as of a letter from Fergal Gaynor, counsel to victims in Kenya, urging UN Security Council members to vote against the resolution.

  Inner City Press checked with sponsors, who confirmed that the paragraphs selectively released are accurate, while telling Inner City Press they'll raise the leak by Western opponents of the draft at a meeting now scheduled for November 5 (and on which Inner City Press will report.)

  What is the position, for example, of the United States? Ambassador Samantha Power declined to comment as she left the closed door meeting between the African Union ministers and the Security Council on October 31.

  Inner City Press asked the US Mission for its position; later on October 31, Ambassador Power tweeted that the ICC's delay would allow consideration of Botswana proposed amendments by the Assembly of State Parties.

   But that doesn't answer: what's the US' position on the African Union's request for the Security Council to grant a deferral under Article 16 of the Rome Statute of the ICC? Inner City Press has asked. Anonymous quotes from diplomats, from a venue which ran a vacuous profile of Power, are not enough. Watch this site.
