Kenyan VP accuses ICC staff of engaging in illicit sex with witnesses

04 May 2016, 16:08

Nairobi - Deputy President William Ruto has made a scathing attack on the International Criminal Court (ICC), saying the court staff engaged in illicit sexual activities with witnesses and their families in exchange for false evidence against him.

Ruto was released from the ICC last month after his crimes against humanity charges were dropped.

Although he said that he had forgiven all those who testified against him and had moved on, the deputy president was not done with the ICC.

Ruto faced three counts of crimes against humanity namely murder, forcible deportation and persecution committed during the 2007/08 post-election violence which left about 1 300 people dead and others displaced.

He however denied the charged, leading to the termination of his case early April, 2016.

Ruto's defence made a request to ICC judges on Monday saying there is sufficient evidence that prosecution witnesses deliberately gave false testimony to the Chamber.

According to The Star, Ruto’s lawyer had already initiated an investigation into the ICC prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda’s witnesses, intermediaries and other ICC staff members.

Daily Nation reported that Ruto accused ICC intermediaries of bribery and witness coaching.
