Government to appeal Ruto ICC ruling

25 August 2015, 18:29 William Korir

Nairobi - The government has sought to be enjoined in an appeal by Deputy President William Ruto in which he is seeking to have a ruling in which the International Criminal Court has allowed witness statements reintroduced in the case.

Ruto and journalist Joshua Sang's case at the ICC took a turn for the worse last week after the trial judges agreed to have recanted evidence taken back into the case.

Ruto's legal team has said it will appeal the decision.

The government has thus asked to be enjoined in the case and wants to appeal the decision on the grounds that the ICC has gone back on an earlier declaration and agreement not to use recanted evidence in the cases.

" We will ask to be enjoined because the ICC has gone back on its word," Attorney General Githu Muigai told News24.

" The issue is that Trial Chamber V (a) has gone back on a promise made to Africa that an amendment to Rule 68 of Rules of Procedure and Evidence would not be applied retrospectively," he added.

" We agreed to have it put aside and they have overlooked it, so we will protest," he added.

The ICC agreed to have evidence from 6 witnesses brought back into the case on grounds that they could be used as legitimate evidence. The 6 had refused to testify or stated that they had lied in their statements.
