Appeals Chamber reverses decision on use of recanted evidence

ICC Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda has been dealt a major blow in her case against Deputy President William Ruto and his co-accused Joshua Sang for crimes against humanity.

This is after the court’s appeal chamber overruled the trial chamber’s August 2015 ruling granting Bensouda the right to use recanted evidence rejected by five hostile prosecution witnesses.

In a ruling delivered by a single judge, Piotr Hofmanski, the court described the trial chamber’s ruling on Rule 68 as a legal error made to the detriment of the accused.
