UN wants answers on police torture

The UN has put Kenya under the spotlight to explain why the Executive
continues to ignore court orders and failure to prosecute police
officers engaged in torture.
The United Nations Commission on Human Rights (UNCHR) on Tuesday
questioned the Kenyan delegation to Geneva over the manner in which the
Executive branch of the Government continues to breach court orders.
The team headed by Justice Minister Eugene Wamalwa was asked to provide
data on the number of police torture victims and those who had been
arraigned before the courts, which the Kenyan delegation did not submit
in its report.
