The Hague, Netherlands -
International Criminal Court prosecutors are dropping their crimes against humanity case against a prominent Kenyan after a key witness admitted lying in his incriminating testimony.
Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda told judges on Monday she is withdrawing all charges against Kenya's Cabinet secretary Francis Muthaura, who is charged with crimes including murder, rape and deportation for his alleged involvement in deadly violence that erupted after his country's 2007 presidential election.
Muthaura is indicted with Kenyan president-elect Uhuru Kenyatta, but prosecutors argue they have more evidence against Kenyatta and his prosecution should continue. - Sapa-AP
