Son in danger, claims ex-ICC witness’ father

The family of a former witness in the ICC case against Deputy President-elect William Ruto has claimed their son’s life is in danger.

The family has asked the government to give their son security following claims that officials from The Hague-based court are looking for him to reconsider his decision.

The family claimed that the life of the witness was at risk following allegations that he was being trailed by some ICC officials, who wanted to meet him.

“The government needs to guarantee security to our son after he voluntarily stepped down as a witness against Mr Ruto in the ICC case,” the man’s father, Mr William Kipkosgei, said.

He called on the Office of the ICC Prosecutor to contact their son’s lawyer for any information concerning his withdrawal of his testimony.
