The case against 6 officers linked to the death of two Kianjokoma brothers who died after being arrested for flouting COVID-19 rules is set to start today at the Milimani law courts.
Their request to have the bodies exhumed for a second postmoterm examination was opposed by the court.
The case is now set to take a fresh twist after Lawyer Danstun Omari who is among the lawyers repressing the officers revealed that due process was not followed before the six officers were presented in court.
Danstun together with the other lawyers representing the officers have made a public inquest application which they will present before the judge today.
According to lawyer Danstun, failure to follow the rule of law in this case will affect the whole security apparatus in Kenya.
He further urged Kenyans not to attack him and the other lawyers who are representing the officers since at the moment, they are just suspects and will remain innocent until proven guilty.
