SUSPECTS HAVE DENIED CHARGES, RELEASED ON BOND
The magistrate said it will be unfair to proceed with the case without Gethi’s lawyer. Gethi told the court he needs time to hire a new lawyer. The suspects have denied 15 counts of money laundering and are out on Sh300,000 bail each. They are accused of colluding to wire the money from NYS coffers and using part of it to buy property through phony companies. They allegedly committed the offences between December 1, 2014, and March this year.
