Modified Charges in the Ruto/Sang Case

The Trial Chamber released its decision on the Modified Charges Section in the DCC in the Ruto/Sang case. It is a shorter decision than the Kenyatta/Muthaura decision on the modified charges; the main issues that the Chamber dealt with were:

  1. The defence objections to the way in which Sang’s alleged liability was described in the Modified Charges
  2. The defence objections to the inclusion of an alleged attack on Kimumu.
  3. Various other objections regarding the temporal scope and wording of the Modified Charges

Generally, the Trial Chamber left the Prosecution’s version of the Modified charges untouched, barring a few changes to the language and requiring greater precision on the temporal scope of the charges.
