Kenya accepts use of recanted evidence in Ruto ICC case

31 October 2015, 12:46 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Kenya has accepted the use of recanted statements in the ICC trial against Deputy President William Ruto following an agreement to have both sides of the divide use the evidence.

The country has been against the use of the evidence as it has directly affected Ruto and also Journalist Joshua Sang in their Crimes against Humanity trial.

However, under new Witness Protection legislation which has been approved by Chief Justice Willy Mutunga takes root from November 23 this year, which means that the use of recanted evidence will be allowed.

The only catch is that the recanted evidence will only be allowed in cases where both the prosecution and defence had cross examined the witness.

The move comes after the ICC's Rule 68 which has brought so much furore in the trial with Ruto and his team not happy that the ICC has used the recanted evidence to add juice to their case.

Ruto is at the ICC answering to charges over his part in the 2008 Post Election Violence.
