William Ruto accuses ICC staff of engaging in illicit sex with witnesses

04 May 2016, 12:08

Nairobi - Deputy President William Ruto has made a scathing attack on the International Criminal Court (ICC), saying the court staff engaged in illicit sexual activities with witnesses and their families.

Ruto, who has maintained his innocence despite the court continuously accusing him of interfering with witnesses, has said the ICC staff solicited sex from witnesses in exchange for false evidence against him.

According to The Star, Ruto’s lawyer has already initiated probe into the ICC prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda’s witnesses, intermediaries and other ICC staff members.

In a filing made Monday by his lawyer, Daily Nation reports that Ruto accuses ICC intermediaries of bribery and witness coaching.

This comes just a month after the ICC dropped a crimes against humanity case against the deputy President.

Ruto was facing three counts of crimes against humanity namely murder, forcible deportation and persecution committed during the 2007/08 post-election violence which left about 1,300 people dead and others displaced.

He however denied the charged, leading to the termination of his case early April, 2016.

He was facing trial alongside five other Kenyans including President Uhuru Kenyatta, whose cases also collapsed due to lack of evidence.
