We will also issue an international arrest warrant,” Noordin Haji said. CMC di Ravenna has denied any wrongdoing. In a statement on Monday, the company said it had not been informed of “any official communication from the Kenyan authorities... CMC is certain of the correctness of the work of the company and its representatives, both in Italy and abroad”.
