Police called for investigation in HRW damning report

26 July 2016, 15:03

Nairobi – Human rights Watch (HRW) have been shunned by the police for their report implicating police in extrajudicial killings and disappearances.

According to Daily Nation police spokesperson, Charles Owino accused HRW of wrongful accusations and had called for the Independent Policing Oversight Authority (Ipoa), the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) and the Witness Protection Unit (WPT) to review the report.

“HRW should liaise with Ipoa, the DPP and the WPT and if possible come up with a report in the next 30 days,” said Owino.

The report released by HRW titled Deaths and Disappearances: Abuses in Counter-Terrorism in Nairobi and North-Eastern Kenya made claims about 11 people being killed and 34 disappearances in the last two years.

Owin said the report is and will cause a rift between the police and the public.

On July 4th three police officers were arraigned in court over the death of a lawyer Willie Kimani, his client and their driver in April.

Rights groups have in the past accused some sections of the Kenyan police of being involved in extrajudicial killings, a charge that police deny.
