Friday June 26, 2020 – A Kiambu Court has summoned the Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI), George Kinoti, for defying a court order directing the release of motor vehicles that belong to former Sports Cabinet Secretary, Rashid Echesa.
The order issued on Friday requires Kinoti to appear in court on July 3rd.
“You are hereby required to attend this court at 8pm on July 3, 2020 in the above case to explain why you have not released the motor vehicle as ordered by the court in the above case and remain in attendance until released,” reads the summon.
Senior Principal Magistrate, Stella Atembo, had on June 10th ruled that the vehicles; a Toyota Lexus, Ford Ranger and a Mercedes Benz E-350, were being held without sufficient reason thus contrary to the law.
“The act of detaining property without any support or any law of order of the court with sufficient reasons contravenes the constitution which provides for the right to private property and opportunity to be heard,” Senior Principal Magistrate Stella Atembo ruled.
