It added: “During the public status conference on 14 May 2013, the parties and participants will present their observations on the Prosecutor’s request to add five witnesses to the list of witnesses and the Defence’s request to vacate the trial date. “


The Chamber will also hold non-public ex parte status conferences with the Prosecution on 7 May 2013 and with the Defence on 14 May 2013, to discuss these issues and other procedural matters.


Ruto who is Kenya’s Vice President and former Minister of Higher Education, Science and technology is accused of being criminally responsible as an indirect co-perpetrator pursuant to article 25(3)(a) of the Rome Statute for the crimes against humanity of murder, deportation or forcible transfer of population and persecution during the 2007 post election violence.


Pre-Trial Chamber II found that there are no substantial grounds to believe that Joshua Arap Sang, the head of operations at Kass FM in Nairobi, was an indirect co-perpetrator, because his contribution to the commission of the crimes was not essential.


Instead, Mr Sang is accused of having otherwise contributed (within the meaning of article 25(3)(d) of the Rome Statute) to the commission of crimes against humanity which include murder, deportation or forcible transfer of population and persecution.
