Lawyer Miguna Miguna has been deported again, despite a court order directing the government to release him.
One of his lawyers, Mr Nelson Havi, confirmed that Dr Miguna was ejected Wednesday evening via a Dubai-bound EK722 flight.
Earlier, High Court Judge George Odunga had ordered Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i, Immigration chief Gordon Kihalang'wa and Police boss Joseph Boinnet to release the lawyer from detention at JKIA, which they failed to do.
"The three are hereby convicted accordingly and should appear before this court tomorrow at 10am," Justice Odunga ruled.
Judge Odunga criticised the three officials for disobeying the court with impunity.
In their defence, two junior State lawyers claimed the trio were unreachable because they were attending a General Service Unit graduation.
