The Hague - Lawyers for former Head of the Civil Service Francis Muthaura now want the ICC Prosecution to explain the role of university scholar professor Makau Mutua in its investigations on the Kenyan cases, Capital News reports.
During Tuesday’s status conference, one of Muthaura’s lawyers Karim Khan asked the chamber to order the prosecution to disclose Mutua’s role with the office of the prosecution and to detail any and all contact they have had with this person, as he expressed fears the prosecution may have been dealing with intermediaries in discharging its functions.
One of the judges Christine van den Wyngaert said the chamber was duty bound to protect the right of the defence as well as the witnesses as stipulated in the Rome statute.
