ICC Case Takes A New Twist As Witnesses Now Decline To Testify Against Lawyer Paul Gicheru

Bad news has today emerged concerning International Criminal Court (ICC) as witnesses decline to testify against lawyer Paul Gicheru. The court is said to have admitted documents of a second witness despite his unwillingness to participate in the case. However, the court has admitted his papers as part of the evidence which will be used in the persecution case.

The witness was expected to testify that the second in command deputy president William Ruto was involved in the post election violence in Turbo. However, the witness is said to have received Ksh. 2.5 million as a bribe in order to hide the evidence. After receiving the bribe, the witness went missing until when he met with the persecution that is when he agreed to testify againt Lawyer Paul Gicheru.

According to reports from the Standard publication, the ICC judge said that if he agreed to testify, he will likely lie as he maintained that he told the court the truth about deputy president William Ruto and Sang.
