Kenyan court revokes deportation of opposition lawyer Miguna Miguna

Kenyan court revokes deportation of opposition lawyer Miguna Miguna

He directed immigration director Gordon Kihalagwa to surrender Miguna's passports to court within seven days.

Justice Luka Kimaru ruled that the revocation of Miguna's citizenship by the Immigration Department was illegal, null and void.

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 Miguna, who holds dual Kenyan and Canadian citizenship, is now in Canada after being put on a flight to Toronto by the Kenyan government last week following several days in police detention.

A Kenyan high court has declared the deportation of Kenyan-born opposition lawyer Miguna Miguna to Canada illegal and without merit in the laws of the country.

A senior interior ministry official said the Kenyan government will appeal the court ruling.

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

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.

Kibicho argues that in as much as the government respects the court's decision, the government still holds its earlier view that the deportation of Miguna Muguna was procedural and done in accordance with the law.

"The High Court had no jurisdiction to issue the orders that were made which in essence are orders which can only be made in judicial review proceedings or a constitutional reference", said lawyer Ngatia in the court papers.

In a tweet, Miguna welcomed the court ruling, stating that they will use the Constitution to fight injustices.
