Karim Khan, DP William Ruto’s Lawyer demanded that former ICC Prosecutor Moreno Ocampo be prosecuted for conducting shoddy investigations in the cases against Ruto and journalist Joshua Sang.
This comes after Deputy President William Ruto case of crimes against humanity was vindicated yesterday. The lawyer said that Ocampo was misguided in his investigations, calling for a probe on Ocampo to ascertain how he arrived at the decision of tying Mr Ruto and Sang to the alleged crimes.
“Why did he drag six innocent Kenyans into baseless accusations? Ruto and Sang were maligned yet they bowed their heads for justice. There should be an independent inquiry on how the prosecution did its work,”
Khan also said that the former prosecutor was misguided by the well known status of Ruto and Sang whereas they dint investigate on the sources of information and was to blame for the bungled cases, after judges failed to find evidence to sustain trials.
Sang’s attorney Katwa Kigen also said that he would now seek the court to fully acquit the journalist from all charges since his innocence had been qualified by the Trial Chamber.
The ruling brought in celebrations with their supporters now blaming the prosecution for troubling the two with a prolonged court battle that was not worth their wasted time and resources.
