Tob Cohen to be buried Monday after wife & sister reach agreement

The family of the late Dutch tycoon Tob Cohen on Thursday reached an agreement to bury him on Monday in line with his Jewish faith.

Cohen’s wife Sarah Wairimu had clashed with his sister, Gabrielle Van Straten, over who had the right to bury the deceased’s body.

Wairimu’s lawyer had written a letter to Chiromo Mortuary barring the administration from releasing Cohen’s body without her approval.

On Wednesday night, lawyers from the two sides said they had reached an agreement that would not require the matter to be dragged farther through the court processes.

We agree on the need to bury Cohen’s body and we may reach an agreement without going to the courts. We will finalise that when we meet on Thursday morning,” Wairimu’s lawyer, Philip Murgor, told the press.

The deal reached on Thursday morning is subject to the courts granting Wairimu permission to attend the ceremony.
