Kenya is under pressure to investigate the killing of a renowned Pakistani journalist – Yahoo Finance

Pakistan’s prime minister Shehbaz Sharif wants Kenya to move fast and bring to book those responsible for the murder of award-winning investigative journalist Arshad Sharif. Sharif was killed on Oct.23 near Kiserian town, some 30 kms from the capital Nairobi. He was 50.
Sharif, a critic of Pakistan’s military and government acts, left the country in August to avoid arrest, after his Powerplay TV talk show was discontinued by ARY Television for its unrelenting criticism of the current regime.

He initially went to Dubai, but was forced to flee due to alleged harassment by Pakistani officials.
Kenyan police say Sharif, who was being driven by his host’s brother Kurram Ahmed, was killed by police officers after his driver defied orders to stop at a roadblock. Sharif was shot at the back of his head with the force of the bullet being so powerful that it came out at the front.
The car was shot at 17 times. Initial investigations are pointing to a case of mistaken identity with Kenya’s Independent Policing Oversight Authority saying it is investigating the murder. Reportedly, the number plate on the car Sharif was traveling in, was similar to that of a car that was involved in a kidnapping.
Just had a telephonic call with Kenyan President William Ruto about the tragic death of Arshad Sharif in 🇰🇪. I requested him to ensure fair & transparent investigation into shocking incident. He promised all-out help including fast-tracking the process of return of the body to 🇵🇰

Media unions in Nairobi have also denounced the killing. In a statement, the Kenya Editor’s Guild wants the government “to quickly and thoroughly investigate the case to determine the cause and reason for the killing.”
The Kenya Union of Journalists sent out a press release demanding the “immediate arrest of the officers involved in this incident and charge them in court.”

NEW YORK (Reuters) -U.S. prosecutors said on Monday they have charged two Chinese nationals with trying to obstruct prosecution of a Chinese telecommunications company that a person familiar with the matter identified as Huawei Technologies Co Ltd . Prosecutors said the case is representative of a broader pattern of unlawful influence efforts by China, and announced they had also charged 11 people in two other cases with spying for Beijing or intimidating Chinese dissidents. In the case involving the alleged efforts to tamper with the Huawei investigation, prosecutors said two Chinese intelligence officials attempted to recruit a U.S. law enforcement agent to work as their spy.
