Appeals Court delays ruling on Security Laws

12 January 2015, 19:20 William Korir

Nairobi - The Court of Appeal needs 2 weeks to decide on the fate of the controversial Security Laws.

The three judge bench led by Justices Patrick Kiage, Agnes Murgor and Daniel Musinga decided that they will make an announcement on the case Friday 23 January after submissions from Attorney General Githu Muigai Monday.

The AG is looking to revoke an earlier High Court order in which 8 clauses of the controversial law were suspended just over ten days ago.

Muigai is seeking an order which will revoke the ruling suspending the laws, terming the High Court out of line in making the decision to suspend the laws.

He says that the High Court does not have the jurisdiction to make such a ruling.

The High Court had earlier suspended eight sections 12, 16, 26, 29, 48, 56, 58, 64 of the Security Act, pending a determination on their constitutionality to be decided by the Chief Justice who was to form a three judge bench to decide on the matter.

The Coalition for Reforms and Democracy CORD and the Kenya National Commission on Human Rights had filed the petition seeking the annulment of the law.

But Muigai in his argument states that there is no contravention of the constitution with the law in its current state.

He also insists that the law does not infringe on the rights of Kenyans as is claimed by CORD and KNHCR.
