The drama surrounding the deportation of fiery lawyer Miguna Miguna continued to unfold Wednesday following reports that immigration boss Gordon Kihalangwa had surrendered the Nasa activist's passport to court.

In a letter written to the deputy registrar of the High Court's criminal division, Ngatia and Advocates indicated that the Immigration director had complied with a court order which required him to deposit the passport in court.

Whilst the court ordered that a valid passport be surrendered, the letter said that the one which was surrendered was perforated.

"In compliance with orders issued on February 15, we attach hereto the perforated passport of the applicant," the letter read.


According to the lawyers representing the Immigration director, the passport had to be surrendered in that manner since it was perforated as soon as he was deported to Canada.
