Lawyer in Karen land row applies for anticipatory bail, cites plot to shut him up
A city lawyer involved in a wrangle with a businesswoman over property on Nairobi’s Karen estate is seeking to block his prosecution for alleged forgery of documents for the multimillion-shilling land.
Guy Elms has made an application for anticipatory bail, saying police intend to arrest and prosecute him to silence him from defending the estate of the late Roger Robson.
The DPP directed the police to charge the lawyer based on forensic examination results that revealed that the purported signatures of the deceased on the will and power of attorney in Elms’s possession as an administrator of the vast estate are forgeries.
The police said Elms’s application is “a tactical attempt to frustrate the due process of law.”
The case has been adjourned to November 22.
