Witness in Ruto trial declared hostile

09 September 2014, 09:46

Nairobi - A witness who admitted that he gave false statements in the trail against Deputy President and Joshua Sang has been declared hostile by the International Criminal Court’s Trial Chamber.

The declaration was made following a second application by the prosecution lawyer Anton Steynberg.

Steynberg had made a similar application last week but it was rejected by the Chamber because it was premature, The Standard reports.
