ICC Allows Kenyan Deputy President to Appeal Testimony Decision

The International Criminal Court granted Kenyan Vice President William Ruto’s legal team leave to appeal its decision to admit as evidence recanted testimony in his trial on charges of crimes against humanity.

The court had allowed the previously recorded testimonies of witnesses to be admitted in a ruling on Aug. 19, according to a statement e-mailed Thursday from The Hague.

Ruto has been accused of inciting violence after a disputed presidential election in 2007 that left at least 1,100 people dead. He denies the charges.
