Attorney General Muigai summoned to the Hague
31 January 2014, 16:59
Nairobi - Attorney General Githu Muigai will be required at the Hague as a prosecution request over witnesses in the ongoing trial facing deputy president William Ruto and journalist Joshua Arap Sang.
Chief prosecutor Fatou Bensouda wants Muigai to respond to a plea in which she wants all witnesses who have declined to appear before the court in the Ruto- Sang trial be summoned.
If the AG does go, it will be in a fortnight.
The defence has argued that Bensouda's request is unlawful and impossible under Kenyan law, thus Muigai's submission before the court to explain Kenya's constitutional stand.
Whether the AG does appear is another issue altogether.
The Ruto- Sang and president Uhuru Kenyatta case have been hit by several withdrawals of witnesses, with the Uhuru one in particular on the brink of collapse.
