Talk to my lawyer

Director of Criminal investigations George Kinoti

The Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) George Kinoti, has hired lawyer Donald Kipkorir to represent him in a case filed by Sarah Wairimu-Cohen.

DCI Kinoti wrote a letter to Ms Cohen's lawyer Philip Murgor to serve his legal representative, Mr Kipkorir with the application.

According to DCI Kinoti, he found through social media out that Ms Cohen was taking legal action against him.

He told the Murgor that he was out of Kenya, and that he has been meant to understand that the State is yet to receive the application of contempt against him.

Jail culprits

Wairimu filed to have Kinoti, Nation's journalist John Kamau, and State prosecutor Juma Victor Owiti jailed for six months for contempt of court.

According to Wairimu, the respondents disobeyed an edict issued by Lady Justice Jessie Lesiit on September 16, which barred the DCI, DPP and the media from publishing content involving investigations into Tob Cohen’s death.

She accused DCI Kinoti of “prosecuting” the case against her on September 13 after discovering Cohen’s body in his Kitisuru home.
