Nairobi - A ruling to decide whether journalist Walter Baraza will be extradited to the International Criminal Court ICC is set for Tuesday.
The ruling will be made at the High Court in Nairobi where judge Richard Mwango will give his ruling on the plea by Baraza not to be forced into being sent to the Hague.
Baraza is wanted by the ICC to answer to charges of obstruction of justice in the trial against Deputy president William Ruto for which a warrant of arrest was issued in September last year.
He is accused of playing a part in the bribing of witnesses who had been scheduled to testify against Ruto at the ICC over his crimes against humanity charges.
His lawyer Kibe Mwangi has so far argued that the move to try his client at the Hague is unconstitutional.
The ICC believe at Baraza is behind the continued withdrawal of witnesses from the case facing Ruto.
The case has four parties enjoined in it, with Baraza,, The Attorney General's office, The director of public prosecutions DPP and witnesses at the ICC.
