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

The adjournment of the trial is extended up to Tuesday, 1 October 2013, and the hearings in this case will resume on Wednesday, 2 October, with the continuation of the witness’s testimony, in the presence of the accused. This is to permit Mr Ruto to attend the inter-denominational service scheduled for Tuesday, 1 October.

Hearings will then continue on the week of 7-11 October 2013, contrary to what was initially scheduled (except for 9 October due to other hearings to take place in other ICC cases at the ICC’s premises).
