A judge yesterday extended an order stopping the government from deporting British Journalist Lucy Hannan. High Court judge Isaack Lenaola further directed Hannan to file her response to claims by the government that she is engaging in subversive activities hence the move to declare her an illegal immigrant.
Hannan who runs InformAction, an NGO that screens human rights films in rural areas and holds community discussions on justice is expected to put in a supplementary affidavit in the next 14days. Her organisation has employed 40 people.
Human rights activist Maina Kiai is one of the NGO directors. Hannan was issued with a work permit for the first time in 2007 and has been renewed since. However, when she applied for renewal last year, it was rejected.
