The International Criminal Court (ICC) had implicated the deputy President William Samoei Ruto into the witness interference scheme involving his cases at the Hague and he was also accused of corrupting the witnesses.
The deputy president is having a rea
son to smile after ICC Deputy prosecutor James Stewart yesterday informed the trial Chamber that, they wanted to obtain crucial documents to corroborate the evidence he had provided concerning payments made to him by Mr Gicheru.
This is a big relief to the deputy president William Ruto who has been in recent times been threatened by the ICC court that he was likely to be taken back to Hague. He was accused of interfering with the witnesses during their case at Hague concerning the post election violence.
Dropping of some key witnesses in the case, is likely to weaken the case and make the deputy president a free man.
