A Kenyan opposition lawyer, Miguna Miguna, has been charged with treason over the mock "swearing in" as president of opposition leader Raila Odinga.
The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) said government's refusal to abide by court orders was contempt for the rule of law and a brazen example of censorship.
His whereabouts remain unknown after the police defied a court order to release him on a KSh 50,000 bond.
After the Inspector General of Police and Director of Criminal Investigations failed to produce the National Resistance Movement leader Miguna Miguna in court yesterday as ordered; now the High Court Judge Luka Kimaru has this time ordered them to personally appear in court on Tuesday morning to explain their failure to produce self-proclaimed NRM General in court.
Miguna told a magistrate there that he can not take a plea in the court because "Justice Luka Kimaru is waiting for me at the Milimani Law courts in Nairobi".
This came in the backdrop of Miguna's decline on taking a plea at the Kajiado Court where he had been arraigned earlier.
Miguna's arrest has sparked protests.
This not likely to happen as the Nasa activist has now been ejected out of Kenya.
The government was not served with the court order on Thursday afternoon because of a delay at the court registrar's office, Okiya Omtatah, an activist who filed the High Court case and won the lifting of the suspension, told Reuters.
The charge sheet against Mr Miguna alleged that he "was present and consented to the administering of an oath to Raila Amollo Odinga purporting to bind him to commit a capital offence of treason", leading to fears among opposition supporters that the Nasa leader could also be arrested and charged with committing treason.
They also be recording a statement on why they attended Raila's "swearing-in" held at Uhuru Park on Tuesday, January 30.
The NTV, KTN News and Citizen TV channels were taken off the air on Tuesday, hours before they were due to broadcast Odinga's event.
The party said the swearing-in is based on the annulled results of the August 8 presidential election, which they believe they won, but claim it was rigged to favour President Uhuru Kenyatta.
