Fresh details indicate Bensouda wants DP Ruto, Sang’s ICC case revived

Fresh details habe emerged indicating that International Criminal Court (ICC) Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda wants Deputy President William Ruto and journalist Joshua arap Sang revived.

Speaking with the Daily Nation on Thursday z November 3, Bensouda stated that the cases were vacated but not thrown out of the court.

She said that the court is ready to receive any fresh information that would incriminate the two urging any individual privy to the case to provide substantial information.

Bensouda further said that political interference was one of the reasons for vacating the case.

“As you are aware, on April 5, 2016, Trial Chamber V (A) vacated the charges against William Ruto and Joshua arap Sang, without prejudice to the Prosecution bringing a new case in the future or in a different firm, in light of new evidence,” she said.

“As a general matter, in accordance with the Art. 15 of Rome Statue – the founding treaty of the ICC – any individual or group from anywhere in the world may send information on alleged crimes to the ICC Prosecutor, who is duty-bound to protect the confidentiality of the information received, treat it with full independence and impartiality,” she added.
