UNITED NATIONS---Kenya has asked the UN Secu-
rity Council to end International Criminal Court
proceedings against President Uhuru Kenyatta and
others, but council diplomats who discussed the
request on Thursday said the 15-member body could
not stop the case.
The Security Council is only able to defer Inter-
national Criminal Court proceedings for one year
under article 16 of the Rome Statute, which established
the Hague-based court a decade ago. The council
would need to adopt a resolution to do that.
"The letter from the Kenyans is slightly bizarre
because they are actually asking the Security Council
to do something that it has no authority to do," said
a senior council diplomat.
Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto were
among six suspects initially charged by ICC pros-
ecutors with orchestrating tribal violence after the
2007 election, when some 1,200 people were killed.
Kenyatta and Ruto both deny the charges.
In a letter to the Security Council, Kenya said the
implications of Kenyatta s trial "for the viability and
continuity of the state should be self evident." Keny-
atta s trial is due to start in July.
"What this delegation is asking for is not deferral.
What this delegation is asking for is the immediate
termination of the case at the Hague without much
further ado," Kenya wrote to the Security Council.
The Security Council discussed the request on
Thursday. The senior council diplomat said it was
unlikely there would be "widespread support" for
deferring the proceedings against Kenyatta---who
was elected in March---for a year.
The International Criminal Court on Monday post-
poned the trial of Ruto on charges of crimes against
humanity, saying it wanted to hold further hearings
with the prosecution and the defense. Ruto asked
the ICC last month to postpone the start of the trial
to give his legal team more time to prepare. (Reuters)

MONROVIA---Newspapers in Liberia have printed
black front pages after a government official was
accused of threatening journalists.
The director of the presidential security service
reportedly told a journalist: "Be careful, because
you have your pens and we have our guns."
The security chief, Othello Warrick, later issued
a statement saying he has no intention to endanger
the lives of any journalists. The local journalist
association known as the Press Union of Liberia
says it is "outraged and alarmed."
Radio and TV stations also are protesting against
the government by suspending broadcasts for two
hours daily beginning Friday.
Liberia s information minister says the West
African country has done everything possible to
ensure press freedom and freedom of speech. (AP)
