ICC Kenya case continues with witness nr 2: Khan plays video to show Ruto didn’t address Kitale rally

Posted by African Press International on October 12, 2013

The witness is pushed to a corner and as time goes, he is being silenced. The defence is exposing him and he hesitates when answering questions.

Part 1
Khan plays video to show Ruto didn’t address Kitale rally

Part 2
Ruto’s lawyer Khan calls ICC witness a liar

Part 3
Khan disputes witness claims that Ruto called non-Kalenjin hyenas

The witnesses coming after this witness may now be getting scared when they see that the defence is well-equipped with documents to prove their case.

ICC: Kenya case adjourned due to failure to produce prosecution witnesses

Posted by African Press International on September 11, 2013

Deputy President William Ruto‘s and Joshua Sang‘s case adjourned today due to lack of witnesses. The court was not happy but took the decision because there was no other way.

This sends a message that the prosecution has witnesses that they do not rely on. This may soon give the defence ammunition to puncture the prosecution’s case. Hon Ruto was expected to travel back to Kenya and will avail himself next Tuesday the 17 September to the court.

ICC: Kenyans may soon see the colapse of Ruto and Sang’s case – Prosecution faced with disaster for lack of witnesses this week

Posted by African Press International on September 10, 2013

DRAMA AT THE ICC, as the  case against Deputy President of Kenya William Ruto and Joshua Sang: Fatou Bensouda seeks adjournment for a week due to lack of witnesses:

Today the 10th of September, the case against Deputy President William Ruto opened in the Hague.

Failure by prosecution witnesses lined up for this week to turn up forces the chest-thumbing prosecutor to request the court for one week adjournment.

After opening statements by the prosecution, the Victim’s lawyer and the Defence, the prosecutor asked the court for adjournment until next Tuesday the 17th September because she lacks witnesses. Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda told the court that she was not able to proceed due to lack of witnesses for now. She told the court that she hopes by next Tuesday she will be able to get some witnesses.

This is very surprising and a shock to many observers who say the prosecution is playing a loosing game. How can they not have even one witness to start with and they have known all along that the case was to start today?.

The Defence lawyer for Ruto, Mr Karim Khan hammered the prosecution accusing the office of laxity during the investigation, saying they only relied on NGOs and their manufactured reports instead of doing their own investigation..

Kenyans who gave a warm sent off to Ruto yesterday Monday at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi when he flew to the Hague where he was expected to stay for 3 weeks will be shocked to see him back home after only two nights in the Hague.

The prosecution had better accept that the case is very weak, collapsing and do the honourable thing – to withdraw the charges against the Kenyans.

Tomorrow Wednesday, the case will resume at 09.30 am European Time and will adjourn at 14.00, until Tuesday next week, to give time to the prosecutor to look for witnesses.
