The Court of Appeal on Tuesday lifted an order that had stopped police from arresting journalist Walter Barasa who is wanted by the International Criminal Court.
The appellate court took away Barasa’s freedom after his lawyer Kibe Mungai failed to amend documents in the appeal as earlier directed.
This means that police can arrest and detain him even as he pursues the appeal as there is nothing or no order barring them from doing so.
It is after his appeal that it will be known if the journalist will be handed over to the Hague-based court.
Barasa is being sought over claims of interfering with witnesses in the collapsed case against DP William Ruto and Joshua Sang.
The ICC ruled that the two had no case to answer as there was no incriminating evidence to sustain the charges of crimes against humanity.
