|Ocampo goes to war over Hague witnesses|
Monday, 18 April 2011 01:57
Prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo has reopened the fight over witnesses and the evidence he is relying on to try post election violence suspects.
Mr Moreno-Ocampo has sought permission to appeal an order by the International Criminal Court requiring him to share with defence lawyers the number of witnesses, type of evidence and witness statements he intends to use in the case against six Kenyans.
The suspects are Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta, Public Service boss Francis Muthaura, Postmaster-General Hussein Ali, MPs William Ruto and Henry Kosgey and broadcaster Joshua Sang.
The intention to appeal was made on Wednesday, five days before the court starts reviewing the status of the information sharing.
Defence lawyers told the Nation that they would fight the appeal.
