I didn’t forge Visa credit cards, says Dutch na­tional

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Rift Valley -

A Dutch na­tional has de­nied forg­ing Visa cards for sev­eral banks, which he al­legedly used to buy goods from su­per­mar­kets and ho­tels.

Ja­cobus Stanslaus Dekkers, alias James Howart, faces eight counts of forg­ing Visa cards, al­leg­ing that they were is­sued by Im­pe­rial Bank, Bar­clays Bank and Royal Bank of Scot­land on var­i­ous dates from Fe­bru­ary 2012.

He faces sim­i­lar court cases in Nairobi, Nakuru and El­doret towns.

Dekkers is also ac­cused of us­ing dif­fer­ent names on the forged cards.

“I never forged the cards and I am just be­ing framed. The pros­e­cu­tion can­not prove these claims,” he told se­nior prin­ci­pal mag­is­trate Charles Obu­lutsa.

The hear­ing is set for Jan­uary 1.
