Nairobi - Journalist Walter Barasa wants the High Court to stop his arrest and surrender to the International Criminal Court (ICC) for trial.
Barasa, who is accused of bribing witnesses by the ICC, filed an application at the High Court seeking to bar a request by the Interior Ministry Cabinet Secretary Joseph Ole Lenku to have him arrested as requested by the ICC, saying that his arrest will lead to oppression, Daily Nation reports.
He also wants to be protected by the police after raising fears that he may be arrested by investigators or ICC agents working in Kenya.
