If you’re updated about the current events, you understand or are aware about the tension in Deputy President William Ruto’s political axis after Paul Gicheru, a highly connected advocate and the current chairman of the Export Processing Zone Authority who was slapped with an international arrest warrant in 2015 for alleged witness interference in the Ruto case surrendered to the International Criminal Court.
Last week-on Monday, the ICC announced that Gicheru had surrendered to Dutch authorities in the Netherlands.
“Today, 2 November 2020, Mr Paul Gicheru surrendered to the authorities of The Netherlands pursuant to an arrest warrant issued by Pre-Trial Chamber II of the International Criminal Court,” the ICC announced in a press release
This site had also published that the government had approved the surrender of Ruto’s former legal ally at the Hague.
DP Ruto’s nightmare has been in a case that if ma plea bargain, an agreement between prosecutors and suspects where the latter confess their crimes in return for a lenient punishment or help in nailing persons bearing the greatest responsibility could be used to nail him.
“He might decide to be a witness against Ruto, by spilling the beans and speaking the truth to help the ICC prosecutor nail him,” a lawyer who seeked anonymity told this writer.
Gicheru’s surrender and arrest comes barely 10 months after Ruto warned that there was a plot to revive the ICC case against him.
At the ICC, when reached for a comment or the answers, ICC Spokesman Fadi El Abdallah said that ,
“The court, through the Registry services, submitted a cooperation request to the Dutch authorities for the arrest and surrender of Mr Gicheru to the court upon completion of the necessary national arrest proceedings.”
Renowned lawyer John Khanimwa, who was also the senior most Counsel in DP Ruto’s legal team at the Hague based court had this to say.
“I have just learnt about it [the surrender] today. Of course my services came to an end after the judgment. But the decision was never appealed,” veteran lawyer John Khaminwa told a local media house.
