DPP Haji withdraws Dutch tycoon Tob Cohen’s murder case against Sarah Wairimu and co-accused; matter to be registered as an inquest

DPP Haji withdraws Dutch tycoon Tob Cohen’s murder case against Sarah Wairimu and co-accused; matter to be registered as an inquest.

The Directorate of Public Prosecution (DPP) has withdrawn Dutch Tycoon Tob Cohen's murder. 

According to the DPP, the case in which the late tycoon's wife Sarah Cohen and two others are accused of murdering him will now be registered as an inquest.
 

"The DPP has directed that this matter be handled via inquest to be filed in the Chief Magistrates court `Milimani Nairobi,” a letter from the DPP reads.

“This will enable the contraditions that have affected the proceedinfs of this matter to be heard in detail by all parties. In addition, this will provide an opportunity for parties to present any information that ahd not been explored substantially before the court,"

 

Sarah Wairimu was charged three years ago and the case has never proceeded.

 

The body of Cohen, a former CEO of Philips Electronics East Africa, was found dumped in a septic tank at his home in September 2019.

in a letter filed before the High court Criminal Division, Haji wants the court to terminate the murder trial against the duo.

"I hereby enter a Nolle Prosequi (do not prosecute) and inform this Honourable court that the Republic intends that the criminal proceedings against the above-named persons who are charged with the offence of Murder contrary to section 203 as read with section 204 of the Penal Code, Laws of Kenya shall not continue," reads the letter in part signed by Haji's deputy Jancita Nyamosi.

The two were charged in July 2019 over the murder of Wairimu’s husband Tob Cohen but hearing has never taken off. 

Prosecutor says the case will be pursued through inquest.
