International Criminal Court sets William Ruto, Joshua Sang trial for September 10
Nairobi, Kenya: The International Criminal Court (ICC) Trial Chamber V(a) has set the opening of the trial in the case against Deputy President William Ruto and former radio presenter Joshua Arap Sang on 10 September.
The prosecution arrived at the decision following the defence’s request to have the May 28 trial vacated.
During a status conference held on May 14, in the presence of the two accused, the Chamber discussed among other issues the prosecutor’s request to have six witnesses added to the list.
“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,” read a statement from the ICC.-standardmedia.com
