KENYAN VICE-PRESIDENT LEAVES FOR ICC TRIAL

0

NAIROBI: Kenyan Vice President William Ruto left Nairobi to fly to The Hague on Monday, a day before the start of his crimes against humanity trial at the International Criminal Court. Ruto, 46, charged with masterminding deadly post-election violence five years ago, is the most senior politician to date to face ICC judges, and his trial will start just days after Kenyan MPs voted to abandon the court in a world first. He is accused by the ICC of masterminding some of the 2007-2008 post-election unrest that left at least 1,100 dead and more than 600,000 homeless.
