Uhuru in push to have ICC cases stopped.

President Uhuru Kenyatta has moved to have the ICC case against him stopped citing “serious, sustained and wide-ranging abuse on the process of the court carried out by” three witnesses against him in collaboration with the court’s investigators.
He alleges that his witnesses have been intimidated or interfered with to change their testimony “for reward”.
In an application made late Thursday, his defence team wants the judges to either stop the case permanently
or hold a hearing where the issue will be resolved conclusively before his trial begins on November 12.
Mr Kenyatta’s lawyers have said that if it is found that those involved abused the court process, “it would necessitate a permanent stay of the proceedings”.
“An evidential hearing on abuse of process would require the calling of live witnesses,” it says in the public version of the application.
