Court to deliver ruling on decision to deploy police to Haiti on 26th January.

This comes after a hearing of the petition filed by Third Ways Alliance party chairman Ekuru Aukot and Law Society of Kenya.

During the hearing, the lawyer representing the petitioner stated Midenga Charles told that police being an exclusive national service can not be deployed outside the country.

Lawyer Midenga added that in as much as the foreign country may require technical security support of the National Security Council, only Kenya Defense Forces can be deployed and not the National Police Service and police its member.

The lawyers further challenged the powers of the Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki to order the Inspector General deployed police to Haiti stating that the IG can only take directions from the Interior CS on matters policy.
