British terror suspect faces trial over illegal registration

03 October 2014, 10:42 Ken Wekesa

Mombasa - A Mombasa court has said British terror suspect, Jermaine Grant faces trial over unlawfully attempting to acquire Kenyan registration.

In the ruling the Shanzu Court Magistrate, Anastasia Ndung'u said all the witnesses who testified against Grant when he was accused of trying to illegally acquire a Kenyan Identity proved that the accused had case to answer.

Grant is accused of committing the offense on diverse dates before his arrest in his Kisauni home in December 2011.

He is alleged to have presented identification registration documents in Voi to the Mararu sub-location Assistant Chief, Tibran Tumbo and the Tausa division district officer Esther Waiganjo where he claimed to be Robert Mwakio Mwatata in December 2011.

Grant is also said to have presented false documents on September 19, 2011 and September 26, 2011 where he claimed to be Ali Mohammed and Peter Joseph, a Canadian national.

The accused and his three accomplices had been charged for being in possession of bomb making materials and a plot to make a series of attacks in Kenya.

Prosecution added the unlawful registration to Grant's charges after his attempt was uncovered by officers at the Immigration department.

However, the accused lawyer, Chacha Mwita, applied for the adjournment of the case seeking time to consult with his client on whether to appeal the court ruling.

“Your Honor we are seeking more time to consult as we intend to appeal the court decision," said Mwita.

The case will be mentioned on October 16 at the Shanzu law court.
