On 15 February 2022, the trial in the case The Prosecutor v. Paul Gicheru opened before Judge Miatta Maria Samba of Trial Chamber III of the International Criminal Court (ICC). Mr Gicheru is accused of offences against the administration of justice consisting in corruptly influencing witnesses regarding cases from the situation in Kenya.

Adding, “It is in public domain that he was facing charges at the ICC. It is also in public domain that several witnesses in the ICC cases have either disappeared or died.”

Mr Theuri noted, “There is therefore significant public interest in establishing the cause of his death. We urge the police to be professional and sensitive as to the broader implications on the rule of law and administration of Justice.”
