Ruto wins right to appeal Bensouda ICC decision

10 September 2015, 19:05 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Deputy President William Ruto has been allowed to appeal a decision by the International Criminal Court to allow use of recanted statements in his Crimes Against Humanity trial.

The judges said Thursday that Ruto and his co accused Joshua Sang had the right to an appeal since the decision was important in determining their case.

" According to article 82(1)(d) of the Rome Statute, authorisation to appeal the decision can be granted if the decision 'involves an issue that would significantly affect the fair and expeditious conduct of the proceedings," The ICC judges said in a statement.

" Or the outcome of the trial, and for which, in the opinion of the Pre-Trial or Trial Chamber, an immediate resolution by the Appeals Chamber may materially advance the proceedings, ” they added.

Ruto and Sang had earlier stated that they were confident that the move by the ICC judges would be removed on appeal.

The Kenyan government had also stated that it will seek to be enjoined in the case as it feels let down by the ICC over the matter, stating that the court had gone back on an earlier agreement to not use recanted evidence in the cases against Kenyans leaders.

Kenya had also launched a protest against the ICC to the Inter-party States ASP at the United Nations over the matter.
