A day after Gicheru through his lawyer called for the removal of one of the ICC lawyers, he is now urging the Hague-based court to postpone his first conference from September 17th to September 24th this year.
According to a publication by the Standard, Gicheru's lawyer Michael Karnavas alleges that the September 17th overlaps with his client's other schedule.
Gicheru will be able to know the material evidence the prosecution side will be submitting, whether there will be any need to protect the witnesses, including any other additional information on redactions referrals of the court witnesses and also delayed disclosure.
He will also know if there are active investigations against him, and the identity of witnesses not yet disclosed to him, and if they will deliver their testimonies via video links or audio, and how many hours they will testify against him
In addition, he will be expected to state whether he will be ready to defend himself, and how long his opening statement would be.
