Thursday February 28, 2013 -International Criminal Court (ICC) Chief Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda on Wednesday claimed that Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta bribed witness 4 to drop his evidence against him.
In a special sitting with Pre-Trial Chamber V judges at The Hague, Bensouda said the controversial witness had confessed to accepting money last May from Uhuru’s alleged emissaries to withdraw his testimony.
“Witness 4 revealed in May 2o12 interview that he had been offered, and accepted, money from individuals holding themselves out as representatives of the accused to withdraw his testimony against Uhuru,” Bensouda said.
“The witness provided emails and bank records that confirmed the bribery scheme. In light of these cumulative revelations, the prosecution considers it is not useful to call him as a witness,” emotional Bensouda added
Bensouda said she still has witness 11 and 12 whose evidence helped the Pre-Trial Chamber to confirm charges of crimes against humanity against Uhuru Kenyatta and Francis Muthaura.
She also agreed that the case involving Muthaura is so weak and should be returned to the Pre-Trial Chamber as witness 4 was the only direct witness against him.
However, Bensouda who is a Gambian national insisted that the case against Uhuru must proceed to full trial!
