See my post today on the Monkey Cage
The Kenyatta decision differs from the decision to suspend the investigation of Sudan’s Bashir (see: http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/dec/14/omar-al-bashir-celebrates-icc-decision-to-halt-darfur-investigation). My intuition is that Bensouda responding to the reality that her cases cannot proceed. An alternative understanding, however, would be that this is a response to African pressure. Thoughts anyone about this question?
