South Pokot MP David Pkosing has commenced the process of petitioning United Nations (UN) and Assembly of State Parties ASP on ICC case against Deputy President HE William Ruto and Joshua Sang.
In a press conference in Kapenguria Pkosing said the petition will be signed by members of parliament on behalf of the people of Kenya and it will take 14 days.
The petition process comes after Hon Kuria revealed in public that the witnesses in the ICC case were procured to fix the deputy president and the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga has also come out to give credence to what Hon Kuria said.
“It is now common knowledge and in public domain that ICC witnesses were procured fixed and coached to implicate the Deputy President and Joshua Sang.” Said Pkosing. Pkosing petitions the assembly of state parties In accordance with rule 83 and 84 of rules and procedures concerning oversight of the ICC court and further petitioned the UN in accordance to rule 35 and 36 giving UN participatory role in ASP.
The petition demand that ASP and UN order for a total review of ICC witness identification process of the case affecting the DP and Joshua Arap sang with view of establishing the facts of the procurement and fixing allegations of these witnesses to accuse Deputy President William Ruto and Joshua Sang.
“All these revelations have clearly demonstrated the innocence of the two. It also demands that UN and ASP in the process of auditing the whole witness issue adjourn the proceeding and hearing of this case until the issue of witness saga is determined.” He said
“The continuation of the ICC case will only be mockery to justice and international law” he added.
The legislature stated that if ASP and UN doesn’t listen to the prayers of the petition then it will be a clear message to the world that ICC is not about justice, peace and well being of the world as espoused by the preamble of the Rome statute but a fixer itself and it should be disbanded.
