Two key witnesses of ICC prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo who were under protection abroad have decided they no longer want to testify. One of the witnesses has left the European country where he had been placed under protection while the other is seeking asylum in a different country.The witness seeking asylum is said to have been under pressure from his family to return home but he feared for his life and decided to settle elsewhere.
