The Mombasa collateral review hearing continues

Proceedings continued on Friday in Mombasa High Court on collateral review of the three Kenya Navy courts-martial that handed down a slew of life sentences. Among the arguments: the court-martial was not independent, deliberations took only 30 minutes and the members gave no explanation of their verdict, the nation was not at war, the accused were guilty at most of absenteeism when they took security jobs outside the country, one of the the members was absent for the sentencing phase.
