The third witness to testify in Paul Gicheru's case has told the International Criminal Court that her life was in danger as a result of Paul Gicheru. According to the witness identified as P-0613, Paul Gicheru had allegedly promised certain people Sh2 million to get her photograph.
These details emerged as P-0613 testified against lawyer Paul Gicheru before Chamber III Judge Maria Samba at the International Criminal Court. According to the witness, the person who Gicheru had allegedly sent to take her photograph disclosed to her that he had been sent by Gicheru and that he had been promised Sh2 million.
According to the claims by witness P-0613, Gicheru wanted her photograph in order to reveal her identity. The witness disclosed this information when she was undergoing cross-examination at the ICC. The witness said that Gicheru allegedly wanted her photo since they had never met. She said that Gicheru had hired someone to look for her and take her picture. However the person Gicheru hired is said to have warned witness P-0613, informing her that her life was in danger.
P-0613 said before ICC Chamber 3 Judge Miatta Samba that she begun having issues with her security after learning that she was being pursued. She says that that is when she sought help from ICC and she was put under witness protection.
“I was informed by someone that Paul Gicheru was trying to get my photo and that he had offered Sh2 million reward if he managed to get the photograph. At that time, I had issues with my security and I was put under witness protection,” witness P-0613 stated.
