High Court Judge Luka Kimaru is scheduled to give a ruling at 3pm on issues raised over lawyer Miguna Miguna's detention.

Among the issues he will decide on is whether Mr Miguna should be brought to Nairobi. He will also decide on whether to dismiss a case in which Mr Miguna's lawyers sought orders to have him produced in court.

REQUESTS

State lawyer Nicholas Mutuku told the court on Tuesday that Mr Miguna has been charged in Kajiado and has been represented by two lawyers.

The State wants the court to dismiss the case seeking to have Mr Miguna produced in court.

But Mr Miguna's lawyers have opposed that request and want Mr Miguna brought to the High Court in Milimani as ordered on Monday.
