0 356

The High Court in Nairobi has directed the government to issue lawyer Miguna Miguna with a travel document to enable him return to Kenya.

Justice Chacha Mwita on Monday gave the directive pending the hearing and determination of a case he filed challenging his deportation.

Mwita also ruled that Miguna should be at liberty to use his Canadian passport should the government fail to issue him a travel document.

This according to Mwita should be done on a date and time notified to the respondents by the petitioner.

“During the petitioner’s first re-entry into Kenya, the chairperson of the Kenya National Human Rights Commission be allowed access to the immigration and customs clearance areas at the port of petitioner’s re-entry in order to observe the extent of the respondents observance of the relevant constitutional human rights and immigration laws applicable to the petitioner’s rights to reenter Kenya,” ordered the judge.

Justice Mwita also suspended orders issued by Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i on February 6, 2018 declaring that Miguna was not a Kenyan citizen and that his presence in the country was contrary to national interest.

He further suspended the decision by Director of Immigration Services Gordon Kihalangwa made on February 5, suspending Miguna’s passport.
