Occupy parliament protesters released on 300,000 bond

23 December 2014, 18:01 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - 8 persons who were arrested for demonstrating outside parliament during the Security Bill debate last week have been released on a KES 300,000 bond.

The #OccupyParliament protestors were on Tuesday released on bond by the High Court after initially being denied.

Their lawyer Mbugua Mureithi along with CORD lawyers James Orengo and Daniel Maanzo were present during the application.

High Court Judge Jessie Lessit agreed that the 8 accused be granted bond to allow them celebrate the Christmas holidays with their families, seeing as their case was not deemed overly serious.

The 8 who were arrested during last week’s protests along Parliament Road as debate on the Security Laws Bill will now be released after the respective amounts were deposited in the court's coffers.

CORD leaders had called on the protest last week to prevent the passing of the bill but it failed to kick off after heavy police presence blocked entry into and out of parliament on the day.
