ICC to make key ruling in Ruto case Friday

What you need to know:

  • Last evening, the Appeals Chamber of the ICC said it would deliver its ruling on Friday at 6.30pm Kenyan time.

  • Kenya has been mobilising the international community — including the Assembly of States Parties — to stop the use of recanted evidence in the Ruto case.

  • The court could weaken the case made by Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda if it rules that Rule 68 cannot be applied retroactively.

Deputy President William Ruto will know this Friday if the International Criminal Court (ICC) will admit recanted evidence in the case against him.
