A confidential report prepared by the International Criminal Court on victims of the post-poll violence is to be made public any time now.

Judges handling the Kenyan case at The Hague last week ordered the court’s registrar to release the report by the close of business on Monday.

The document is expected to contain details of the victims’ testimonies about what happened during the violence that led to the killing of 1,133 people and displacement of 650,000 others from their homes.

The report was filed by the Victims Participation and Reparations Section on March 15 in confidence.

Wellbeing

The Pre-trial Chamber says that having reviewed the report they are satisfied that the basis for keeping it confidential no longer exists.

However, the Registrar has been asked to edit the document “in order to protect the safety, physical and psychological wellbeing, dignity and privacy of victims”.

The judges have also said that a decision on the extension of a time limit issued by the chamber in December be made public.
