Press Statement on the Current Anti-Terrorist and Screening Operations
In response to acts of terrorism that have intensified in Kenya in the recent past, and also in view of the response that has been put in place by the Kenyan government to address incidents of terrorism, we members of the Kenyan human rights community, who work on the promotion of human rights, would like to make a number of observations in relation to the recent developments.
