NIS officer was deported from the Netherlands, government admits

21 April 2015, 18:26 William Korir

Nairobi - A National Intelligence Services NIS officer was deported from the Hague, the government has admitted.

In a letter to newsrooms Tuesday, the Interior Ministry through spokesman Mwenda Njoka admitted that the officer was deported for having discrepancies in his travel documents while seeking to travel to Germany.

The officer was arrested at Amsterdam's Schippol airport with faulty travel papers and with the government informed of his presence there, it was found that he was an NIS officer.

Mwenda however denies that the officer had gone to the Netherlands to interfere with an International Criminal Court ICC witness as had been reported in some sections of the media.

The officer was alleged earlier to have been arrested by Dutch intelligence officers as well as security detail of the ICC as he sought to try meet the ICC witness, a stance the government has quickly denied.

Njoka also called on the media houses that have published the story to apologize or face the full force of the law.

" The government demands a proper clarification and apology if not, legal redress will be sought, the statement signed by Njoka reads.

The story was published Tuesday morning by the Daily Nation Newspaper.

It is a well known secret that there are several attempts to speak to and derail witnesses at the ICC who are testifying in the case affecting Deputy President William Ruto and journalist Joshua Sang.
