Kenyan lawyer deported to Canada over Odinga 'swearing in'

 


A Kenyan pro-opposition lawyer, Miguna Miguna, has been deported a week after he was arrested on treason-related charges.

Mr Miguna, who is Kenyan-born but also has Canadian citizenship, was put on a flight on Tuesday evening bound for Canada via Amsterdam.

His charge relates to his participation in a ceremony one week ago in which the opposition leader, Raila Odinga, swore himself in as the "people's president".

A High Court judge earlier ordered police to release Mr Miguna after they were unable to produce him in court.

The opposition coalition said it would file contempt of court charges against the government for violating the judge's order.
