The hearings to confirm the role played by three of the six Kenyans accused of planning and financing the 2007-08 post-election violence started Thursday, with a defence lawyer accusing prosecutors of failing to properly investigate the unrest.“There has been a failure, a total failure, to investigate the exonerating circumstances in the investigation,” Mr David Hooper, the defence lawyer of Mr William Ruto, told the Hague-based International Criminal Court (ICC).“I hope the bench appreciates the deep frustration he (Ruto) is feeling. He is here solely because of a flawed investigation based on the over-reliance on a handful of witnesses,” Mr Hooper said, adding “you have been given a slanted and wrong interpretation of evidence”.Presiding judge Ekaterina Trendafilova asked lawyers for Mr Ruto, Mr Henry Kosgey and Mr Joshua Sang, and Prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo to avoid repetitive arguments and play by the court’s rules.
