High Court has summoned Police Inspector General Japhet Koome over failure to arrest Defence Principal Secretary Patrick Mariru following an arrest warrant.
High Court Judge John Chigiti directed IG Koome to appear in court by October 25.
The PS was accused of failing to pay Ksh52 million to nine retired Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) soldiers.
The soldiers were serving under Kenya Airforce during the 1982 attempted coup.
Court had ordered the government to pay the soldiers the money as compensation following the torture they went through.
The former officers, who were serving in various technical fields at the time, were arrested for allegedly participated in the August coup on account of being Kenya Air Force officers.
They claimed that they were tortured in order to compel them to confess to the allegations.
The former officers also claimed that they were placed in overcrowded cells and detained without trial for seven months.
They claimed that were later released and dismissed from the service without any valid reason.
Aggrieved, the officers sued the State over the issue, seeking the government to pay them general damages and violations suffered.
In 2013, Justice Isaac Lenaola ruled in favour of the nine former officers and directed the State to award them Ksh55 million.
