Big Blow:ICC reverses ruling allowing Uhuru to skip sessions
Judges at the International Criminal Court have reversed an earlier ruling allowing President Uhuru Kenyatta to skip trial sessions.
The judges have now ordered President Kenyatta to be continuously present during the hearings, in view of the recent judgment by the Appeals chamber on the matter.
Any absence, the judges said, will be assessed on merit.
“Trial Chamber V(b) held that as a general rule, Mr Kenyatta must be present at trial. Any future requests to be excused from attending parts of the trial will be considered on a case-by-case basis,”-nation.co.ke
