Witness still nowhere to be seen in Ruto ICC case
25 March 2015, 18:40
Nairobi - A witness set to testify in the trial against Deputy President William Ruto has yet to appear, causing serious debate between the prosecution and defence.
The argument has stemmed on what amount of time the prosecution will need to have the witness available to testify.
The witness is the 30th and final of the prosecution.
The prosecution has insisted that P0727 is a key witness who has crucial evidence in the case.
He was first expected to testify on Monday when the trial resumed for the last session of the prosecution’s case. The prosecution wants a number of weeks to find the witness while the defence insists it should only be a few days.
The judges are scheduled to hold a status conference on Thursday to resolve the current impasse between the defence and the prosecution.
The current trial session adjourned for third day Wednesday over the continued absence.
The defence team is set to apply for an end to the trial once the prosecution finishes with its submissions.
