Heated court session

Philip Murgor releases photos showing “inappropriate meeting between DPP &  Patrick Muiruri’s daughter

City lawyer Philip Murgor on Tuesday caused a heated court session after he released photos that allegedly showed Senior Assistant Director of Public Prosecutions (SADPP) Catherine Mwaniki having what he described as an inappropriate meeting with a daughter of former MP Patrick Muiruri.

Murgor made the submissions before Justice Stella Mutuku after the state and the family of the late Cohen claimed he was still serving as a special prosecutor and should be barred from representing Sarah Wairimu.

The only reason that Senior Prosecutor Catherine Mwaniki is saying that they are thinking of coordinating with the Attorney General to de-gazette my name is because they want to hold my client on a detention without trial.

In an affidavit, the hotshot lawyer accused senior prosecutor Catherine Mwaniki of taking instructions from third parties who allegedly wanted him to be disqualified from the case.

 “I conclude by saying that at page 73 of our affidavit, there is a color photograph of Mwaniki (objection from the state)…I was surprised by Catherine Mwaniki as to the position of my standing as a public prosecutor.”

It was an unethical and malicious position and driven by extraneous parties in this case After the High Court session on 12th September 2019, I witnessed Catherine Mwaniki reporting to the daughter of Honorable Patrick Muiruri,” Murgor said.

Mwaniki told the judge that she had not confirmed the photo that allegedly captured with Muiruri’s daughter. She, however, defended herself saying there was nothing barring the prosecution meeting with relatives of the late Tob Cohen.

Former Gatundu North MP Patrick Muiruri and his daughter have featured on multiple times in Cohen’s case.

Muiruri in the past told the media that he had spoke to his friend Cohen on the night he died and the Dutch tycoon reportedly told him Wairimu should be held liable in the event that something tragic happened to him. 

Justice Mutuku adjourned the hearing to Thursday when she will rule on whether Murgor can act as a defense attorney.
