Mombasa High Court hears collateral attack on Kenya Navy closed court-martial

The High Court in Mombasa is hearing a collateral attack on the court-martial of 16 former members of the Kenya Navy. The accusers were convicted after a trial that was closed to the public and after only 30 minutes' deliberation. Details can be found here. From the news account:
"The office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, led by its Coast head Alexander Muteti, however, said the soldiers knew the consequences of deserting the army and asked the court to show them no mercy."
