Ruto allowed to miss ICC case to attend to Mandera killings

02 December 2014, 17:06 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Deputy President William Ruto has been allowed to skip the hearing of his case at the International Criminal Court ICC Wednesday to attend to matters insecurity in the country.

The DP was expected in the Hague Wednesday, but after the killing of 32 innocent Kenyans in Mandera, his lawyers lodged an appeal to have his presence at the court put on hold.

The application made Tuesday morning was in the afternoon accepted by the trial chamber.

The Mandera killings, which saw Al Shabaab militia kill non Muslims at close range, has sparked fury from Kenyans all over the world and added to the state of fear already gripping the country.

Just last week, 28 other Kenyans were killed in a similar incident, this time on a Nairobi bound bus.

The ICC has previously allowed Ruto to miss court sessions if his presence in the country is much needed as is the current case.

Ruto is being charged with crimes against humanity at the ICC.
