UNSC refused the deferral

Now the UK has proposed that Mr Kenyatta be allowed to participate in his trial by video link from Nairobi, which would require a change to the rules governing the ICC. This would clearly resolve the objections relating to both governance and regional security, making it impossible for the AU to continue with its campaign for the trials of sitting presidents to be deferred until they complete their term of office, without undermining its credibility completely.
