Appeal court: Will ICC rule in favour of Deputy President Ruto on Friday 25th October?

Posted by African Press International on October 23, 2013

The Trial Chamber had granted Mr Ruto excusal from attending all sessions of his trial but the prosecution led by Bensouda appealed against it.

The appeal court will now rule on Thursday in an open court if Ruto should be granted excusal. The ruling will be delivered livestreamed in an open court.

If the court rules in favour of the Deputy President he is expected to fly to Kenya the same day in order to attend to his constitutional duties.

President Uhuru Kenyatta was granted excusal recently. It is not known, as we go to press, if Chief Prosecutor – Bensouda will appeal and demand that President Kenyatta should be present in the court at all times.
