REF: NAIROBI 2266

1. As per reftel, Post has signed the following joint Heads
of Missions statement on the Commission of Inquiry on the
Post-Election Violence, which was released to local media
on October 16.

Begin text:

We, the undersigned Heads of diplomatic missions based in
Nairobi, welcome the publication of the report of the
Commission of Inquiry on the Post-Election Violence
(CIPEV). We applaud the Commission and its members for
their commitment to fairness and impartiality in their work
and the constructive way that they have engaged with
representatives of the Kenyan government, with civil
society and the Kenyan public in carrying out the
Commission's mandate.

We are studying closely the Commission's report on the
violence which followed the elections of December 2007. We
encourage all those committed to Kenya's stability and
development to urgently consider the Commission's findings
and recommendations and to take appropriate action. As
international partners of Kenya, we stand ready to consider
support for their early implementation.

As a critical part of the National Dialogue and
Reconciliation process, the recommendations of the CIPEV
will need to be taken forward alongside those of the
Independent Review Commission, the formation of the
forthcoming Truth, Justice and Reconciliation Commission,
the carrying out of the Constitutional Review process and
other reforms to be undertaken under Agenda Item 4.
Collectively, they represent a defining moment for Kenya to
ensure that the appalling post-election violence is never
repeated. We reiterate our strong support for this process
and our hope that the Kenyan people will seize this
historic opportunity.


Canada, Japan, Mexico, Norway, Switzerland, the United
States of America, the European Commission, France (as
local EU Presidency on behalf of the following EU member
states represented in Nairobi: Austria, Belgium, Cyprus,
Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece,
Hungary, Italy, The Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania,
Slovakia, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom)


Nairobi, 16 October 2008
