Today at about 6P.M in the evening, we will get to know the decision reached by the prosecutor concerning the cases of the deputy president and the former radio presenter. They are both facing charges for crimes against humanity during the Post-Election Violence (PEV).The issue here is whether withdrawn testimonies that were initially used against the accused will still be used as evidence against the cases before the ICC. This is so because some witnesses claimed to have lied or were forced to testify or like the case of a witness who went missing never to be seen again.
A lot have been happening now that Kenya has individuals with cases before this court and we have seen the president of this country lobbying African countries to withdraw from the Rome Statute. The popular Rule 68 was amended in 2013 by member countries of the ICC. By weighing the options here, in case the judges say that the law should not be used then the defense team of the D.P can challenge that the case facing him be terminated. But then if the judges decide that the case go on as it is, then this means the accused will be forced to put in order their team for defending them.
Politically, this case is affecting the D.P and so whatever the court decided means a lot to him. So if the court decides that the evidence cannot be used, then this means that this case is collapsing and it may mean that there is no case to answer. But then if the case is continued in accordance to this law, then it means that this case my take long most likely beyond 2017 because from the look of things the case has not yet kicked off.
So we are waiting to see what will be ruling will be.
