The High Court has lifted the red alert stopping exiled lawyer Miguna Miguna from flying back home.

In his ruling on Friday, November 22, Justice  Hedwig Ong’undi directed the Kenyan Embassy in Berlin, Germany, to give an emergency travel document to enable his travel to Nairobi within three days.

Justice Ong’undi further directed the Foreign Affairs Cabinet Secretary Raychelle Omamo to ensure the the government comply with the order.

Once in possession of the Emergency Travel Document, Air France should allow Miguna  to board an available flight to Kenya with immediate effect.

“The petitioner applicant upon entry in Kenya should immediately apply for a Kenyan passport and the same to be issued to him within 7 days of such application provided there’s compliance with all the requirements,’’ said Justice Ong’undi

In response to a fresh case filed by Miguna seeking the lifting of the red alerts, Kibicho in an affidavit dated November 17 said the entire application was based on hearsay and inadmissible evidence and ought to be struck out.

The PS responded that Miguna was advised through Kenya National Commission on Human Rights to visit the Kenya High Commission in Ottawa and obtain an emergency certificate to enable him to travel to Kenya.

According to  court documents, the commission on Human Rights wrote  on November  5 to the Immigration department asking them to facilitate Miguna’s return to Kenya by issuing him with a valid Kenyan Passport, something that the department failed to honor.

While accepting the new ruling allowing him to return home, Miguna stated that he would be at the Kenyan Embassy in Berlin in the next two hours to get every thing ready.
