Police will arrest Barasa: Kimaiyo

15 May 2014, 16:15 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Police will arrest journalist Walter Barasa once an order arrives from the Director of Public Prosecutions DPP's office, police boss David Kimaiyo has said.

Barasa was Wednesday ordered arrested by the High Court which will allow for his extradition to the International Criminal Court ICC.

The journalist is wanted by the ICC for alleged bribery of witnesses in thew case against deputy president William Ruto.

Judge Richard Mwongo issued the order Wednesday, with the spotlight quickly shifting to the police and whether or not they will enforce the order.

Kimaiyo, when asked Thursday whether they would arrest Barasa, said that they would do so, but pending communication from the DPP.

" If a warrant has been issued then it has to be enforced by law, he said.

" At the moment though, there is no such order in existence and such movement will only be made once there is communication from the arresting authority.

" When and if there is an order from the DPP, there will be an arrest made, he added.

Barasa has fought hard against his extradition to the ICC over what has been termed as a ploy by him to compromise witnesses in the crime's against humanity charges that Ruto holds at the Hague based court.
