OSUJI warns RUTO over making media statement regarding the ICC - You will be ARRESTED and DETAINED!Politics 01:56
Saturday October 26,2013 - Trial Chamber V(a) Presiding Judge , Chile Eboe Osuji on Friday cautioned Deputy President, William Ruto, against discussing his ICC case in the media when he returns into the country for three days, to sit in for President Uhuru Kenyatta who is visiting Rwanda.
The judge said Ruto had done it before and the chamber had accepted his lawyer’s apology over the matter.
“The first time this happened his counsel apologized and said it was a mistake,” Osuji who is a Nigerian national said.
Two weeks ago Ruto addressed the media at The Hague where he accused the Office of the Prosecutor of conducting shoddy investigations.
Last week, speaking to CNN, Ruto still attacked the ICC saying the court relies too much on falsehoods rather than relying on naked truth.
The Prosecution led by Fatou Bensouda wrote to the Trial Chamber V judges saying Ruto addressed matters before the court outside the court room.
But on Friday, Osuji said if Ruto repeats the mistake again, he will be arrested and detained at The Hague.
