Dr.Kennedy Ondieki: Kenya should have sent Taiwanese suspects back to Taiwan instead of to China

45 Taiwanese suspected of involvement of a phone fraud ring in Kenya have been sent to China rather than deported to Taiwan. The move has led Taiwan to lodge a protest with Kenya and China. The Taiwanese government has asked the mainland Chinese government to release the Taiwanese. In early April, Kenya had forcibly deported Taiwanese suspects to China.

 

Dr.Kennedy Ondieki, an assistant professor at National Chengchi University in Taipei, said the Kenyan government should have sent the Taiwanese back to Taiwan instead of to China, adding that it could have been a case of mistaken identity. Dr.Ondieki used to serve as a court clerk in Kenya for four years.

 

The detainees were asked by Taiwan’s representative to South Africa, John Chen to resist if the Kenyan police tried to remove them from the detention center as the suspects had been deceived by the Kenyan police saying that they had bought them tickets to Taiwan, but instead, the police had tried to deport them to China. Kenyan police used submachine guns and tear gas to break down the walls of the detention center later. Taiwan’s South African representative John Chen had gone to Kenya to obtain a court injunction that prohibited the Kenyan police to take the Taiwanese suspects away by force, but the Kenyan police ignored the injunction. Dr.Kennedy Ondieki said the police should not have ignored the court injunction but Taiwanese official in Kenya should not have asked the suspects to resist either.

 

Taiwan has now hired lawyers to file a lawsuit against Kenya’s interior minister and head of police for violations of laws. Taiwan also filed a protest with Kenya’s National Commission on Human rights that had transferred the case to Independent Police Oversight Authority for further investigation.
