Acquitted terror suspect now deported to Somalia

A former terror suspect Alweys Omar has been reportedly deported to Somalia after being arrested in Mombasa Monday evening.
A combined contingent of officers from the Anti-Terror Police Unit and the General Service Unit arrested Omar at his house on Likoni Towers opposite Nakumatt Likoni in Mombasa.
Omar was then taken to the ATPU Mombasa offices before being flown to Nairobi for further interrogation.
Juniour Immigrations officials who spoke on condition of anonymity confirmed the incident saying Omar was put on a plane to Somalia Tuesday morning.
Mombasa police boss Robert Kitur maintained his earlier remarks that he was unaware of the arrest or the transfer of the terror suspect to Nairobi.
In January Omar and another suspect Issa Matan who were co-accused on terror-related charges were acquitted after police failed to produce adequate evidence for a prosecution.
The two were freed on January 3rd after Police officer Philip Tuwei told the court that Omar and Matan are in the country legally and are not in any way connected to terrorism.
