Kenya reports ICC over Ruto case fiasco

04 September 2015, 19:01 William Korir

Nairobi - Kenya has reported the International Criminal Court ICC to the Assembly for State Parties ASP over its insistence to include recanted evidence in the case facing Deputy President William Ruto.

The government has written to the ASP in protest over the move by the trial judges to include evidence into the case which has seen evidence from 6 witnesses in the case, who had withdrawn their evidence returned.

The 6 had either said that they did not say the truth in their evidence or refused to testify.

The government says that the ICC went back on an agreement with the ASP on the matter, stating that it had been agreed that no recanted evidence would be used in the case.

" Kenya was duly assured, through consensus reached by States Parties, that the proposed amendments to Rule 68 shall not be applied retroactively," Kenya said through its representative to the UN.

" Moreover, specifically and crucially, Kenya was expressly informed that there would be no attempt to apply the amended rule 68 in the trials underway before the Court and more particularly so, in the trials relating to the Situation in the Republic of Kenya," the government added.

Ruto has already said that he will appeal the decision and the government has stated that it seeks to be enjoined in the appeal.

Ruto is at the ICC on accusations of Crimes Against Humanity committed in the 2008 Post Election Violence. His co accused is journalist Joshua Sang.
