    Preacher’s lawyer on the spot over AG court order

    Kenyan Police have concluded investigations into whether a lawyer who represented controversial Muslim preacher, Abdullah al Faisal, forged a court order he served on the Attorney General.

    The police told the court on Tuesday that they have filed a report with their recommendations but did not disclose them.

    High Court judge Lady Justice Jeanne Gacheche asked to study the report and told the parties involved that they would be informed how the case will proceed this afternoon.

    The preacher’s lawyer, Mr Mbugua Mureithi raised eyebrows with an order he served on the Attorney-General in a case involving Mr Al Faisal’s deportation.

    Blocked the State

    The order indicated that the court had blocked the State from deporting the controversial preacher and also directed that he be produced in court.

    The court, however, denied issuing an order stopping Mr Al Faisal’s deportation and wanted to know how that ended up on the papers served on the AG.

    The judge then ordered an investigation and declined to withdraw the case even after Mr Al Faisal was deported.

    Activist Al-Amin Kimathi, who filed the case on behalf of Mr Al Faisal, had sued Immigration minister Otieno Kajwang’, the Police Commissioner, Commissioner of Prisons and Attorney General.
