Police on the spot over ‘most wanted’ list
The Kenya National Commission on Human Rights said people on the list must also be given a chance to defend themselves.
Chairperson Florence Jaoko said police sometimes issued certificates of good conduct to the same people they had previously termed as ‘most dangerous’.
She said despite this the same police force would still refuse to remove them from the list.
“Putting people carelessly on the list (of most wanted criminals) exposes them to unwarranted danger,” she said.
“How can the same ‘criminals’ be allowed to obtain certificates of good conduct?” she asked.
