Recent Court Documents in the 2 ICC Kenya Cases 5 January 2013

The last year, the Ruto/Sang defence applied to have the Prosecutor compelled to state whether she intended to rely on the same witnesses as at the confirmation hearings. Now the court has ruled on that application. I won’t keep you in suspense. The application was rejected. The court was quite clear that while it expects the Prosecutor to stick the deadlines in the schedule for disclosure, the judges do not require ‘pre-deadline disclosure’.

The trial chamber also rejected an application from Sureta Chana, the former common legal representative, to present the views of victims on their legal representation at the trial stage.

The Trial Chamber instead suggested that she file an amicus curiae (friend of the court) brief.

The Prosecutor has filed a response to an earlier filing by the Ruto/Sang defence objecting to some of the contents of the Modified Charges section of the Document containing charges. The prosecutor urges the court to dismiss the defence filing.
