Kenya: ICC Witness Lawyer Paul Gicheru Dies

September 27, 2022

By Samuel Ouma [caption id="attachment_100872" align="alignnone" width="764"] Lawyer Paul Gicheru[/caption] Kenyan lawyer Paul Gicheru, charged with allegedly bribing witnesses at the International Criminal Court (ICC), is dead. The lawyer died at his Karen home in Nairobi on Monday night. Family sources and police revealed that Gicheru collapsed and died in a mysterious circumstance. The deceased was accused of bribing and intimidating witnesses in the failed International Criminal Court (ICC) trial of President William Ruto and journalist Arap Sang. The Hague-based court issued a warrant of arrest against lawyer Gicheru on March 10, 2015. After dodging the arrest, he finally surrendered to the court on November 2, 2020, and made his first appearance four days later. The prosecution said that the lawyer bribed and intimidated prosecution witnesses to withdraw their assistance from the court. Gicheru denied the charges against him, with closing statements from prosecutors and the defense being issued on June 27, 2022. ICC court was yet to deliver its final verdict on the case.
