The International Criminal Court’s Chief Prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda, is not done with Kenya…at least not yet.
She has disclosed a batch of 161 confidential items of evidence she holds against Kenyan lawyer Paul Gicheru in his witness tampering case.
Her latest move brings the total number of evidential materials disclosed to Mr Gicheru to 309, ahead of the March 15 deadline for the filing of written arguments in place of open-court confirmation-of-charges hearings.
The record, which contains incriminating and potentially exonerating materials, is classified as confidential as it has information which could identify witnesses if disclosed to the public.
The new development comes with Mr Gicheru and Ms Bensouda embroiled in a fresh row over the latter’s bid to investigate the case further.
Ms Bensouda wants to use personal items, which were seized from Mr Gicheru, upon his surrender to the Dutch authorities in The Hague, Netherlands last November, to gather more information which may help her tighten her case.
