Following the instructions of the court, William Ruto deposited a document waiving his right to be present at his trial at the Hague.
The trial chamber also ruled on the Government of Kenya’s submissions on cooperation. The judges did not go into the merits of the matter, noting that there was no application by the Prosecutor accusing the Government of non-cooperation. They did however ask all parties to submit requests of notification of any applications relevant to the Government (such as a possible application for Non-Cooperation and Referral to State Parties). They dismissed the Prosecutor’s request that the GoK be cautioned for revealing confidential information in its filings because the GoK had already recognised the mistake and apologised.
