Security Law remains suspended, says Appeals Court

23 January 2015, 11:19 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - 8 clauses of the controversial Security Law, which was suspended by the High Court will remain so, the Appeals Court has said.

The appellate judges ruled that the clauses remain suspended Friday, despite a spirited fight by Attorney General Githu Muigai, who had tried to have the ruling by the High Court reversed.

The judges termed the application by Muigai as out of order and said that he ruling by High Court judge George Odunga as not unconstitutional.

Odunga had suspended clauses 12, 16, 26, 29, 48, 56, 58 and 64 pending hearing of the case by the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy CORD and human rights organizations.

CORD had argued in the initial case that the laws were infringing on human rights and that they were unlawfully passed in parliament.

Through lawyer James Orengo, CORD said that the law was passed in parliament against the standing orders, as MPs were not seated as is required.

He also insisted that the laws infringed on constitutionally provided for rights such as freedom of speech and expression.

On his part, the AG said that the High Court was not in any position to suspend the laws and that Judge Odunga was way above his weight in doing so.

The laws, passed and signed into law quickly by president Uhuru Kenyatta were aimed to curb the increased rate of terrorism in the country.
