A Kenyan woman who was beaten in public by several people in Beirut's Burj Hammoud last month was deported by General Security over the weekend, the woman's legal representative told The Daily Star Monday. This comes despite a General Security statement released earlier this month that said Shamila Cheban Nabwayo would be allowed to remain in Lebanon until after a verdict was issued in the assault case.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.
