The Prosecutor v. Philip Kipkoech Bett
The warrant of arrest was issued under seal against Paul Gicheru and Philip Kipkoech Bett on 10 March 2015 and unsealed on 10 September 2015, for offences against the administration of justice consisting in corruptly influencing witnesses regarding cases from the situation in Kenya. On 11 December 2020, Pre-Trial Chamber A severed the cases against Paul Gicheru and Philip Kipkoech Bett. Philip Kipkoech Bett is not in ICC custody.
Next steps: Until Philip Kipkoech Bett is arrested and transferred to the seat of the Court in The Hague, the case will remain in the Pre-Trial stage. The ICC does not try individuals unless they are present in the courtroom.
