New twist in Dutch billionaire Tob Cohen murder case
New twist in Dutch billionaire Tob Cohen murder case: A court has refused to allow Gilgil MP Martha Wangari to be enjoined in the Dutch billionaire Tob Cohen murder case.
Justice Daniel Ogembo on Friday dismissed the application by Wangari ruling that she is not party to the case.
The pre-bail report of Peter Karanja had been presented in court to determine whether he will be released or not.
Karanja is the ex-husband of the Gilgil lawmaker.
However, all lawyers in the case including the prosecution opposed his submissions arguing that he is a stranger to the proceedings and the court should not listen to him.
The prosecution argued that the proceedings were not of a divorce or a land case but a murder case.
But Kimani insisted that Wangari did not want the court to deny Karanja bail but rather she wanted to know their marital status and that of the house.
“We are here to tell the court that the house belongs to my client,” Kimani said.
Karanja through his lawyer told Judge Ogembo that the said house is rightfully his and there is an order by a Nakuru court on the same.
The court will deliver Karanja’s bail ruling on Tuesday next week.
