Kenya gives Miguna ‘defaced’ passport back

Miguna Miguna – the lawyer who played a key role in the mock inauguration of Kenyan opposition leader Raila Odinga – has been given his passport back by the government.

Kenya’s courts ordered its return after it was confiscated earlier this month.

However, Mr Miguna, who was deported to Canada, says the returned passport had been defaced.

Last week, Judge Luka Kimaru declared Mr Miguna’s deportation “illegal”, ordering the government to reissue the lawyer with his Kenyan passport within seven days.

Mr Miguna was deported after playing a prominent role in the “swearing-in” of Mr Odinga as “the people’s president” in Uhuru Park, Nairobi, on 30 January.

He was arrested in a dawn raid on his home on 2 February, after he goaded police officers to come and arrest him, and deported on 7 February.

The government has not commented on the state of Mr Miguna’s passport.
