Court declines to unfreeze Haki Africa, Muhuri accounts

08 September 2015, 09:27 Ken Wekesa

Mombasa - A Mombasa court has declined to grant orders to unfreeze bank accounts of MUHURI and HAKI Africa human rights groups.

“I declined to grant orders to unfreeze the accounts because it’s the main prayer in the application without hearing the whole petition,” Justice Anyara Emukule.

Muslim for human rights and Haki Africa had made an oral application through their lawyer Victor Kamau to have the court issue conservatory orders to unfreeze their accounts.

The human rights groups had accused the state, the office of the Inspector General of police and the office of the Director of Public Prosecution of frustrating their case.

“If the case will not proceed today (Monday), I request that at least the bank accounts be opened because of the untold suffering of the families of those who worked in the organizations," said Kamau.

Defense Counsel Salim Wampy said the respondent had failed to submit their replying affidavit despite being served on time, and that their application to have the case adjourned would frustrate course of justice.

However, Ngare who was representing the DPP said they were not ready to proceed with the case since they were not served on time.

He also requested the court to give them 14 days to submit their replying affidavit.

The DPP also opposed the application to grant orders for the case proceed for hearing before they present their replying submissions.

Justice Emukule said that the petitioners had failed to serve the respondents within the restricted timelines and observed that the respondents were entitled to 14 days to respondent with their submissions.

The case will come up for hearing on September 2.
