Dr. Fred Matiang'i, the former Interior Cabinet Secretary, has been at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) headquarters since 8 a.m. Tuesday, responding to a summons over his claims of a raid at his Karen home. However, his legal team has expressed concerns that the DCI may be trying to detain him to arrest him.
According to Danstan Omari, Matiang'i's advocate, the investigating officers changed the nature of the cross-examination, shifting from the summons to questioning Matiang'i about his assets. Matiang'i chose to exercise his right to remain silent, as provided for in Article 49 of the Constitution, prompting the officers to threaten him with arrest.
The officers then sought to take Matiang'i's fingerprints before leaving him and his team in the boardroom. Matiang'i's legal team asserts that they have anticipatory bail orders and will not allow their client to be detained unnecessarily. The DCI has yet to issue a response or update on the interrogation.
