Jubilee leaders celebrate Ruto ICC 'win'

27 November 2015, 15:57 William Korir

Nairobi - The move by the Assembly of State Parties ASP to block the use of recanted evidence in the ICC trial against DP William Ruto has left members of the Jubilee coalition extremely pleased,

The ASP on Thursday bowed down to Kenya's proposal to have the use of recanted evidence in the crimes against humanity trial barred.

Kenya had vowed to quit the ICC if article 68 was left in the same state as it is in which the ICC could recall evidence that had been recanted.

But in the ASP agreeing to the change, leaders have been left with no illusions that the right thing has been done.

" We are happy because our plea has been heard at the Assembly of States Parties in The Hague. Right now, the use of recanted evidence cannot be allowed. As leaders we are very happy and we are sure that going forward, the rule of law will prevail in the case against Deputy President William Ruto," Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen said.

He also expressed confidence that the trial against Ruto would now head in his favour considering the blow that has been faced by Chief ICC prosecutor Fatou Bensouda.

" The trial will now continue in good faith and within the precincts of the law and I expect the DP to soon be released from the ICC," he added.

The ICC had insisted on the use of 6 statements from witnesses who recanted, saying that the law allows the prosecutor to go back and admit the sentences as long as the witnesses had been interviewed prior to the admission of the first piece of evidence.
