Bensouda eyes Githu knockout blow

06 October 2015, 09:25 Wiliam Korir

Nairobi - ICC Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda is adamant that Attorney General Githu Muigai has no place in the trial against Deputy President William Ruto and journalist Joshua Sang.

Bensouda has appealed against an application by Githu to be enjoined in the Crimes Against Humanity trial facing the aforementioned as a friend of the court.

According to Bensouda, Githu does not represent the accused and thus cannot be enjoined in the trial in any capacity.

" The Rome Statute itself is premised on the ability of the accused themselves, through counsel, to present arguments in their defence and to seek the assistance of the Court in preserving their rights, as may be required,” she stated.

She also says that having Githu enjoined in the case, considering that he represents a government that has been trying to have the trial interrupted through other means would be an affront to the court.

" The enjoinment of a party that has previously and at present plans to interrupt the proceedings through other means is an affront to the court and conflict of interest," she added.

The government has been trying to have the use of recanted statements in the ongoing trial ended by appealing to the International Parties States ASP.

A decision on the move is set to be made in November.
