Uhuru to be set free by ICC as Bensouda withdraws charges

05 December 2014, 14:28 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The International Criminal Court ICC chief prosecutor Fatou Bensouda has withdrawn charges against president Uhuru Kenyatta.

Bensouda said in a statement Friday that she could not sustain charges against the president seeing as the trial chamber on Wednesday said she had one week to come up with enough evidence to push the case forward or drop it.

" In light of the decision by the trial chamber's decision on the application by the prosecution on adjournment, the prosecution hereby withdraws the case against Mr Kenyatta, Bensouda said Friday.

" The evidence has not improved to such an extent that Mr Kenyatta's criminal involvement can be proven beyond reasonable doubt. In this light and in view of the trial chamber's decision on adjournment, the prosecution withdraws its charges, she added in her statement.

The news will be a significant victory for the president, who has for long stated his innocence in the case in which he was accused of crimes against humanity for his alleged role in the 2008 post election violence.

The withdrawal means that only two Kenyans remain under ICC watch, Deputy President William Ruto and journalist Joshua Sang, whose cases are still ongoing.
