13 February 2014, 08:21
Nairobi - Attorney General, Githu Muigai, is today expected to tell the judges at the International Criminal Court (ICC) why the government has refused to hand over some witnesses who were supposed to testify in the ongoing case against Deputy President William Ruto, and Joshua Sang.
The AG will argue his case that the government cannot force the witnesses to travel to The Hague based court to give evidence against their will, The Standard reports.
The prosecution at the ICC had lined up the seven witnesses to testify against Ruto after they recorded statements with the court.
According to the AG, ICC prosecutor Fatou Bensouda’s application to have the witnesses forced to testify was unconstitutional.
