The Hague - The Appeals Chamber at the International Criminal Court (ICC) is set to issue a ruling on the appeal against the earlier decision that had allowed Deputy President William Ruto to be absent from some sessions during the hearing of his trial at The Hague.
ICC prosecutor Fatou Bensouda appealed against the ruling saying that the judges acted beyond their discretion in their ruling that favored Ruto, Daily Nation reports.
Last week, judges at the ICC excused President Uhuru Kenyatta from attending most of the sessions for his trial set to start on 12th November.
President Kenyatta has apledged to cooperate with the court even as the African Union pushes for the deferral of the cases.
