This is after the prosecution claimed that the lawyer had agreed to meet Yebei, and that they were allies in a plot to rescue Deputy President William Ruto from the 2007 post-election violence charges.
New documents in Court signed by Deputy Chief Prosecutor James Stewart, shows Mr Gicheru admitted to having met with some of the prosecution witnesses in the case against Dr Ruto.
Similarly, Mr Stewart claimed that the lawyer, who had an office in Eldoret, studied with Dr Ruto at Kapsabet High School, indicating that they knew each other well.
Yebei hit the headlines when he disappeared after being abducted on December 28, 2014 in Turbo area, Uasin Gishu County. His body was found in January 2015 in Tsavo Game Reserve, Taita Taveta.
The prosecution claims there is evidence to prove that Dr. Ruto spent millions of shillings funding plans to bribe witnesses to withdraw and thus disrupt the case.
Although it is not clear what prompted Mr Gicheru to agree to be questioned by the ICC in 2018, the prosecution has asked the court to allow records of the interview to be used as evidence against him.
"Although the defendant denied most of the allegations he was asked during the interview, these records are very relevant to the case as it is his own account.This will provide an important criterion by which any other evidence or statement can be compared and also reduces the risk of the defendant changing his or her evidence and therefore the court will be helped to establish the facts," the prosecution said in a statement.
In addition, it is alleged that the lawyer admitted that he assisted the witnesses in copying the legal withdrawal documents in Dr. Ruto's case during his interrogation.
