A Kenyan woman who was publicly beaten by several people in Beirut's Burj Hammoud last month was deported by General Security a day ago, the woman's legal representative told The Daily Star Monday.This comes despite a General Security statement released earlier this month that said Camila Cheban Nabwayo would be allowed to remain in Lebanon until after a verdict was issued in the assault case. That statement itself was an apparent reversal of a General Security decision to deport her. Nabwayo, along with another woman beaten in same the assault, was referred to General Security on June 22 after they were found to be in violation of the residency system and were not carrying any proof of identity, according to a previous General Security statement.
