Sarah Cohen's lawyer, Philip Murgor claimed that he had been threatened by the head of the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).

Speaking to journalists outside the High Court, Murgor claimed that DCI George Kinoti threatened him and his wife who is a judge.

George Kinoti sent a message to me on 29th of January and said if I don’t stop pushing him, he will ruin my reputation, he will ruin the reputation of the judge who is my wife and the other judge,” Murgor stated.

According to Murgor, DCI Kinoti has been sending messages warning lawyers to back off or he will destroy them

Messages to Murgor

He has been conferred with such great powers but what does he do with it? When he is on the ropes in court, he sends messages to lawyers like me and tells them if you don’t stop, I will destroy you," he stated.

Murgor called on Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji to control the DCI boss.

Mr Haji has the constitutional power to control Mr Kinoti. We are all officers of the court."

"Tomorrow when Mr Kinoti is charged, for example, with abuse of the court, it is us who will defend him. He should stop using social media to intimidate lawyers and the Judiciary,” Murgor stated.
