Breaking News: High Court orders immediate and unconditional release of Dr. Miguna Miguna from the JKIA Immigration Department following case filed by his lawyer Dr. John Khaminwa.
Justice Roselyn Aburili ordered the immediate release of Miguna and directed him to appear in court tomorrow morning.
Miguna had moved to court seeking to be released unconditionally from JKIA.
The self-declared NRMKe general had applied to be granted unrestricted right to re-enter and remain in the country.
He wanted this to be on the basis of his Kenyan passport, ID or a temporary entry permit.
Through his lawyers Nelson Havi and John Khaminwa, Miguna wanted the court to stop the state from deporting him.
In the petition filed at the Milimani law court on Tuesday, Havi indocated that Miguna was being detained incommunicado in a toilet at JKIA’s Terminal 2.
The lawyer said he was apprehensive that he will be abused, tortured and illegally removed from country in order to frustrate the orders of the court.
“The government has refused to comply with court orders directing them to issue Miguna with travel documents to enable him re-enter and remain in the country,” the petition reads.
The Opposition politician was detained at the airport after he refused to board a Dubai-bound plane on Monday night.
