In a letter signed by Ruto himself, he promised the ICC judges that he would also sacrifice any appeal that may arise as a consequence of his absence during his trial that kicks off on September 10.

“I hereby forego every complaint and appeal against any natural consequence of my voluntary absence from the court room as requested,” Ruto said.

Ruto also assured the three-judge- bench that he would remain compliant despite the existence or non existence of technology that could facilitate his ability to follow the trial or instruct the counsel from a remote location.

On their reply, ICC Judges led by Nigerian judge Chile Eboe – Osuji fully accepted the conditions of his excusal from continuous presence at the trial and thanked him for accepting the ICC conditions.
