Situation: Kenya 

Case: The Prosecutor v. William Samoei Ruto and Joshua Arap Sang

Today, 3 June 2013, the Trial Chamber V(A) of the International Criminal Court (ICC) decided to set the opening of the trial in the case against William= Samoei Ruto and Joshua Arap Sang on 10 September 2013 in order to allow the Defence sufficient time to carry out its preparation.

On 6 May 2013, Trial Chamber V had decided to vacate the date of the trial’s= start, scheduled on 28 May 2013, indicating that a new trial date would be set in due course. The Chamber held a hearing on 14 May 2013, in the presence of the two accused, to discuss procedural matters and other issues including the Prosecutor’s request to add six witnesses to the list of witnesses and the Defence’s request to vacate the trial date to adequately prepare its case. After reviewing the parties and participants’ observations, the Chamber, composed of Judges Chile Eboe-Osuji (Presiding), Olga Herrera Carbuccia and Robert Fremr, authorised the Prosecutor to add two persons to her list of witnesses for this case and set the new date of the trial’s opening accordingly.

The ICC is a permanent international court whose primary purpose is to help to put an end to impunity for the perpetrators of the most serious crimes of concern to the international community as a whole, namely genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes, thus contributing to the prevention of such crimes.

Posted by African Press International on May 21, 2013

According to the decision, Trial Chamber V(a) in charge of the case of Mr Ruto and Mr Sang, will be composed of Judges Olga Herrera Carbuccia, Robert Fremr and Chile Eboe-Osuji. Trial Chamber V(b), in charge of the case of Mr Kenyatta, will be composed of Judges Kuniko Ozaki, Robert Fremr and Chile Eboe-Osuji.

Similar changes in the composition of Chambers have been made in previous cases before the ICC, such as the cases of Germain Katanga and Mathieu Ngud= jolo Chui, of Jean-Pierre Bemba Gombo and of Abdallah Banda Abakaer Nourain and Saleh Mohammed Jerbo Jamus.
