Mohammed Hussein Ali

Mohammed Hussein Ali was born in 1956 in Eldoret, in Western Kenya.  He joined the Kenyan army in 1977 and was made Commissioner of the Kenya Police in 2004 by President Mwai Kibaki.

The Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court alleges that Ali, together with Francis Kirimi Muthaura and Uhuru Kenyatta, developed and executed a plan to attack perceived Orange Democratic Movement supporters in the aftermath of the disputed 2007 elections. The Prosecutor further alleges that that Al, in his role as Commissioner of the Kenya Police, personally authorised the use of excessive force in attacks against ODM supporters.

On 15 December 2010, the Prosecutor of the ICC requested the Pre-Trial Chamber II of the ICC to issue summonses to appear for Mohammed Hussein Ali, together with Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta and Francis Kirimi Muthaura on the basis that there existed reasonable grounds to believe that they were criminally responsible for crimes against humanity, pursuant to article 7 of the Rome Statute.

On 15 March 2011, Pre-Trial Chamber II of the ICC issued a summonses to appear. Ali and his co-accused made their initial appearance before the ICC on 8 April 2011. The Confirmation of Charges hearing is scheduled for 21 September 2011.
