Bulgarian jailed for fraud

Written By:KBC Court Reporters

A Bulgarian citizen was arraigned before Nairobi chief magistrate Gilbert Mutembei charged with fraud.

Nicolov Andrian Hriston was accused of preparing thirteen fake master cards to be used to withdraw money from Pesa Point cash machines.

It is alleged that he committed the offence last Thursday at Lavington Green Pesa Point in Westlands, Nairobi.

He pleaded guilty and was jailed for three years.

In another case at the High Court, former Central Bank governor Erick Kotut claims that he cannot be accorded a fair hearing in the 5.8 billion shilling Goldenberg case.

Kotut claims that the Goldenberg report attracted negative publicity both from local and international media.

Kotut wants the AGstopped from prosecuting him on the strength of the recommendations of the Court of Appeal Judge Samuel Elkanah Bosire-led commission of inquiry into the Goldenberg scandal.

In 2006, the High Court absolved Internal Security Minister Prof George Saitoti from any wrong doing in the scandal ruling that the Bosire recommendations were biased and unreasonable.

Meanwhile a doctor from Karen Hospital on Monday testified in a murder trial against the son of former North Imenti MP Nteere Mbogori.

Dr. Dan Gikonyo told the court that the victim was admitted at the hospital’s Intensive Care Unit on December 1 last year and died a month later.

The former MP’s son Albert Kubai Mbogori is accused of killing Benjamin Edward Rahedi in Nairobi.

Dr Gikonyo told the court that Rahedi who succumbed to brain injuries had a gunshot wound on the right side of the head.
