Boinnet, Kinoti appeal High Court decision on Miguna deportation

Kenyan court revokes deportation of opposition lawyer Miguna Miguna

Kenyan court declares deportation of opposition member to Canada illegal

Judge Kimaru has ordered the Director of Immigration Gordon Kihalangwa to surrender NRM leader's passport within seven days.

Further, Dr Matiang'i argues that the issue of deportation of Dr Miguna is pending before another High Court judge and can not be adjudicated upon without a valid hearing.

Miguna's lawyer Edwin Sifuna said: "This morning we went before the high court and all of those agencies [police, department of immigration and the Interior Ministry] that I have mentioned have been found in multiple contempt of court orders and have been directed to purge that contempt by ensuring that they return Miguna Miguna to Kenya".

Interior PS Karanja Kibicho, in a statement, said the ruling was not in the country's best interest.

Miguna Miguna has responded to High Court's ruling that revoked the week-old government's deportation.

Last week, the vocal lawyer was controversially deported to Canada after being held for five days.

Justice Kimaru Thursday ruled that the orders that Dr Miguna be produced in court had not been complied with, and that the DCI and the IG were in contempt of court. "Miguna welcomed the court ruling, tweeting: "[We] are fully committed to the rule of law.

The Assembly, representing a parallel cabinet, led by Odinga, will work towards the objective of mobilising for "new elections under a new electoral regime" to be held before August this year.

He cited eight recent instances, which he called "evidence of bias, double standards, impunity and poor leadership on the part of the judiciary", including Odinga's boycott of the repeat vote, which Maraga did not condemn.

On way forward, Kibicho says the government's legal team handling the case is now reviewing the High Court ruling and will in due course be appealing the ruling.
