Major developments continue to take place in the International Criminal Court of Justice (ICC), concerning Lawyer Paul Gicheru, who was part of the DP Ruto's legal team in a case that the court vacated, citing lack of evidence and cooperation from the Kenyan government.
Recently, the ICC made a ruling that Paul Gicheru will answer the charges facing him, that he was involved in tampering witnesses in a case against Deputy President William Ruto and Joshua Arap Sang.
And now Lawyer Paul Gicheru has received a major setback, after his appeal, which planned to stop the confirmation of charges against him was thrown out.
This means that the ICC Court will continue with the charges against the lawyer, with his case expected to go to the Pre-Trial Chamber of the ICC court.
According to the reports by NTV recently, should the court finds Gicheru guilty of tampering with the witnesses on a case against Deputy President William Ruto and Joshua Arap Sang, the ICC might start a new case against the two Kenyan leaders.
