Kenyan government is been sued after five Chinese allegedly went missing after being arrested by Immigration Department officers.
Gang Shao, Xiaoying Qin, Yang Ting Ting, Li Kangzi and Nan Yangyang were allegedly arrested on Frebruary 15th on Ngong’ road and have not been seen since.
Their representative Brian Angwenyi, says that efforts to trace them have been futile even after searching in morgues, hospitals and police stations.
“The five were taken to Nyayo House and later to immigration offices at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA),” Mr Angwenyi said.
He continues to claim that the victims’ passports were confiscated and they are being held.
In a sworn affidavit, he lists the Director of Public Prosecutions, the Attorney- General, Inspector-General of Police and the Director of Immigration as respondents.
In addition, Mr Angwenyi says the arrest and detention of the five is causing their families stress and suffering, adding that they were in Kenya legally.
