Nairobi - Deputy President William Ruto is on Monday expected to travel to The Hague to attend the beginning of his trial at the International Criminal Court (ICC).
A section of MPs applied for visas from the Netherlands embassy in Nairobi to accompany him and give him moral support as his trial over crimes against humanity starts on September 10 at the ICC, reports Daily Nation.
Meanwhile, another ICC witness who was supposed to testify against Ruto pulled out of the case on Wednesday saying that ICC officials had frustrated him and manipulated his statements. According to him, he was forced to sign the manipulated statements and separated from his family members when he was taken to the Netherlands.
