Former Interior CS Dr. Fred Matiang’i has been holed up at the DCI headquarters since 8am Tuesday where he honored a summons by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) over his Karen home raid claims.
However, his lawyers now fear that the DCI is quietly trying to detain Matiang’i with the intention of arresting him.
Citizen Digital has spoken to his advocate, Danstan Omari who tells us that they were expecting the cross-examination to be in regards to the summons, but when they got to the DCI the questions changed as the investigating officers started querying Matiangi about his assets.
The former Interior CS apparently did not respond to any of the questions as per Article 49 of the Constitution, where a person has the right to remain silent, at which point the officers then stated that he will be arrested.
They then stated that they wanted to get his fingerprints and left, leaving the former CS and his team in the boardroom.
Matiangi’s legal team state that they have anticipatory bail orders and will not allow their client to be detained unnecessarily.
DCI is yet to give a response or an update on the interrogation.
