DP RUTO SAYS TURKISH BUSINESSMAN HARUN AYDIN WAS TORTURED ASKED TO LEAVE KENYA

Deputy President William Ruto has condemned the arrest and subsequent deportation of Turkish businessman Harun Aydin, who has been described as one of his close associates.

Ruto said he had spoken to Aydin who confirmed to him that he was asked to leave the country after being “politically arrested, tortured and falsely profiled as a ‘terrorist’.”

The DP accused government operatives of engaging in “political pettiness” adding that this was dangerous for the economy.

“Just talked and apologized on behalf of Government of Kenya to Aydin Harun, now in Turkey, who was politically arrested, tortured, and falsely profiled as a ‘terrorist’ but later asked to fly out not to shame those involved.

Political pettiness is expensive/dangerous & will destroy our economy. SHAME,” said Ruto in a tweet.

Aydin, who was arrested at the airport and detained after landing in the country from Uganda on Saturday, was expected to be arraigned on Monday to face terror-related charges.

According to his lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi they were ready to undergo a criminal

process only for them to be informed that he had already been kicked out of the country.

Senior Counsel Ahmednasir has vowed to move to court to challenge the deportation saying it was done in contravention of the law.
