Ruto opposes trial arrangement

16 October 2013, 11:21

The Hague - The Deputy President, William Ruto, appealed to the International Criminal Court (ICC) to abandon the continuous sittings approach that it has been using since the beginning of his trial.

Ruto is on trial at the Hague, Swiss-based court for alleged crimes against humanity following the deadly violence of the 2007/00 elections.

“There should be excusal from the continuous attendance of the sessions so as to ensure there is a balance," said Ruto during a press briefing at the ICC.

He further said there were legitimate reasons for the deferrals of the ICC cases to allow him address international matters of terrorism that had been a concern to Kenyans in recent weeks.

Ruto seemed to side with African Union declaration that barred the indicting of sitting heads of states.

Ruto’s statements come at a time when the third prosecutor’s witness is still testifying before the Court.

The witness recounted to the Court how he identified casualties from Langas a town in the outskirts of Eldoret, an area that was at the core of the post poll chaos.

“Those with panga cuts were not Kikuyus but majority of those with arrow injuries were Kikuyus,” said the witness during the court session.
