Bensouda in last ditch attempt to save Ruto, Sang case
24 June 2015, 12:49
Nairobi - ICC prosecutor Fatou Bensouda will seek to have evidence that was recanted admitted into the trial facing Deputy President William Ruto and journalist Joshua Sang.
Bensouda will begin her submissions Thursday as he seeks to have evidence from 6 witnesses that was recanted, re-admitted into the case.
Bensouda insists that the 6 were either forced or coerced into changing their stance on the evidence they submitted initially.
Ruto and Sang's team though, feels that by recanting the evidence, the court is actually admitting evidence that has been declared false into a case.
Ruto and Sang's teams are also pushing to have their cases ended for lack of evidence.
The judges, after submissions from both sides is set to make a decision on the matter in the coming days, in a ruling that will decide the fate of a case which Bensouda says she will have no evidence to admit in the case.
Ruto has always said that he is innocent of the charges levelled against him, stating that like President Uhuru Kenyatta, he was a case of generalization.
