Fresh orders have been issued directing the police to take opposition politician Muguna Miguna to court despite his alleged deportation to Canada.
Miguna was allegedly deported to Canada in the face if a court order that required he be presented to a judge.
The new twist comes days after the mystery surrounding his arrest by Flying Squad and being held incommunicado before being shuffled around remote police stations and a court where he decline to plead to charges in connection with the swearing-in of NASA leader Raila Odinga as “The People’s President” on January 30 2018 at a Uhuru Park.
Justice Luka Kimaru who had earlier ordered for the release of Miguna later issued a directive, in a two page ruling after it became apparent that Miguna was not being taken to court, requiring DCI George Kinoti and Flying Squad boss a Mr Said “to personally avail” Miguna in court on February 7 2018.
“It is apparent that the Director of Criminal Investigations and The Inspector General of Police are in contempt of the orders of this court…” justice Kimaru ruled.
Show of might
The judge said the pair had refused or failed to surrender Miguna as earlier directed so that he ” can be released in terms of the orders te court issued.”
“It is clear that unless this court rakes appropriate remedial action the (police) will continue to treat the orders of the court with impunity,” he said.
The judge said the DCI and IG “must produce the applicant in court by 11.00am February 7 2018” and that to avoid any mischief and further disobedience of the orders of the court he suspended any criminal proceedings against Miguna in any court in Kenya until the police abide by court orders.
Sate agents have been accused of disregarding an order for the release of vocal politician whose arrest has since sparked a show of might between the Executive and the Judiciary, now deemed to issue orders in vain.
