Ruto On A Tight Corner As ICC Prosecutor Makes This Announcement Today After Gicheru's Case

For almost one year now, lawyer Paul Gicheru who was among Dp Ruto's lawyers in the past ICC case have been fighting to get out of the ICC files. This came in after ICC summoned him over his alleged involvement in interfering with witnesses on Dp Ruto's case.

Now, today, Gicheru's case has placed Dp Ruto on a tight corner. This came in after one of the ICC prosecutors made an announcement that could see his case being revived again. As reported by the KTN News,Mr James Stewart who is the ICC prosecutor has announced that Dp Ruto was directly involved in bribery of witnesses on his case. According to this Prosecutor, Dp Ruto's bribery team was lead by Paul Gicheru, Silas Simatwo and Meshack Yebei. The prosecutor went ahead to say that the data available on Gicheru's phone are enough to conclude that Ruto was directly involved in witness bribery.

"ICC deputy prosecutor says William Ruto was directly involved in the alleged bribery of witnesses in his case.James Stewart said that the bribery scheme was led by lawyer Paul Gicheru, Silas Simatwo, Meshack Yebei (deceased), among others." Said the reports.

This announcement by the ICC prosecutor will be a very big headache to Dp Ruto as this could send him back to ICC if the final judgement by the ICC will still link him with this bribery issue.
