Kenyan opposition figure deported to Dubai, lawyers say

From Dubai the fiery and defiant Miguna further accused an officer he only identified as Mr Njihia for "threatening" him and remained adamant that he would not leave Dubai's airport.

A Kenyan opposition politician said on Thursday he was beaten and drugged by officials then deported despite a court order to free him, in the latest twist of a legal tussle that has been condemned by rights groups.

Odinga's supporters insist Kenyatta fraudulently won Kenya's presidential election in August. The government responded by arresting opposition politicians.

Mr Orengo, on Tuesday, said they pinned the court orders at "conspicuous places", saying no official was present to receive them.

A court then ruled he should be allowed back with his Kenyan citizenship reinstated, but he was detained again when he arrived in Nairobi's main airport on Monday, he and his lawyer said.

Kenyan High Court judge, George Odunga, has now fined the country's interior minister, the head of police and head of immigration $2,000 (£1,400) each for contempt of court. Justice Odunga summoned them to appear in court 10am Thursday for sentencing.

Miguna Miguna, targeted in a Kenyan government crackdown amid lingering election tensions, was deported even after a court ordered authorities to release him, lawyer Cliff Ombeta said.

"I was dragged, assaulted, drugged and forcefully flown to Dubai". I'm sick. I need medical treatment.

Miguna Miguna said in a Facebook post that authorities broke into the Kenya airport toilet where he had been held and forcibly injected him, causing him to pass out.

He shared photos of himself and his swollen hand, as he lied in a hospital bed moments after arriving at the Dubai Airport.
