Is DP Ruto In Danger? Details Emerge on What Will Happen Today Which Could Have Ruto Arrested

The ICC is expected to give its last words today in the trial of lawyer Paul Gicheru for interfering with witnesses.

The court said that the comments will be made at the International Criminal Court in The Hague at 11 p.m. Kenyan time.

Gicheru turned himself in to the ICC on November 2, 2020. This was because the ICC's Pre-Trial Chamber II had issued an arrest warrant for him on March 10, 2015.

The Kenyan lawyer is being charged with crimes against the administration of justice for trying to or bribing Court witnesses.

He is said to have paid witnesses to change their statements or not show up to court in the case against DP William Ruto and former journalist Joshua Sang for crimes against humanity.

Six counts of crimes against humanity were brought against Ruto and Sang because of the violence that happened after the 2007 general election in Kenya.

According to reports, should ICC prosecutors have grounded evidences to link Gicheru with tempering of witnesses, DP Ruto's ICC case could be revived, which could have DP Ruto arrested and taken to ICC to face charges.
