The Hague - Deputy President William Ruto has been directed by the International Criminal Court (ICC) to be present during all the sessions of his trial, pending the determination of an appeal by the prosecutor who is opposed to him skipping some sittings.
Capital News reports that Ruto will be required to attend all the sessions when his trial starts on September 10 while he awaits the full ruling of the Appeals Chamber, according to a statement from the ICC Public Affairs Unit.
The statement indicated that the decision on the suspension of the prior ruling will have no bearing on the Appeals Chamber’s final decision, which will be made in due course.
