A court in Kerugoya issued summons to the Director of Criminal Investigations, George Kinoti, for disobeying a legal order.
Justice Janet Mulwa of Kerugoya High Court has ordered Kinoti to appear in court on November 24 without fail.
Application for Summons
The summons came after an application was filed by Patrick Njiru, Kirinyaga Businessman, for contempt.
In the application, Njiru, through his lawyer Brian Khaemba, said Kinoti had disobeyed the order to release his semi-trucks and sugar packaging machines worth KSh 46 million that they had impounded.
Order of Release and Confiscation
The order to release the goods were issued on May 2, 2020.
The police confiscated 1260 bags of suspected illegal sugar at Pareah stores in Ruiru bypass in Kiambu county in June 2018.
Kinoti’s lawyer had told the court that the DCI was keeping the impounded vehicles and machines as exhibits.
In June 2018, Njiru and his wife, Leah Njiru, obtained court orders barring police from arresting them.
