Lawyers for Kenya’s President-elect Uhuru Kenyatta have urged the International Criminal Court to drop charges against him,BBC reports
Mr Kenyatta’s lawyers argue charges against him are now compromised but the ICC prosecutor has said she has additional evidence against him.
The prosecution argued that, the roles Uhuru and Muthaura played were different and assured the court it would be able to support the charges against the President-elect.
Uhuru Kenyatta denies the accusations of instigating violence after the disputed 2007 poll.
The special hearing came a week after charges against his co-accused, Francis Muthaura, were dramatically dropped.
Uhuru argued that with the dropping of charges against former Head of Civil Service Francis Muthaura formally on Monday, those against him fell because their cases were intertwined.
Mr Kenyatta’s running mate in the recent poll, William Ruto, is also due to stand trial at The Hague for orchestrating violence against supporters of Mr Kibaki in 2007 – he strongly denies the allegation.
