Court orders review of security apparatus at Port Police Station

28 August 2014, 15:49 Ken Wekesa

Mombasa - A Mombasa court has directed the review of security apparatus at the Port Police Station where three suspects are being held for trafficking heroin worth KES 1.3 billion.

Senior magistrate Maxwel Gicheru directed that three of the twelve accused be held at the Port Police to enable them obtain medical attention.

The defense council lead by Gerald Magolo had made an application seeking to have the three accused held at the Port Police until the next mention date so they can access medical care and legal counsel.

The defense application was however dismissed by the prosecution after the deputy DPP, Justus Kituku informed the court the the Kilindini OCPD had instructed him that the Station did not have sufficient space.

“The port police can only hold 20 inmates and introducing three more inmates at the facility will be over stretching the limited facilities available at the station,” said Kituku.

Kituku said the only reason the police had requested to hold the accused at the facility earlier was to facilitate investigation into their case.

However, defense lawyer Pascal Nabwana argued that the state was exercising double standards.

“Prosecution had applied to hold the accused for their own gain; we are only applying to have the three to be held there to seek medical attention,” said Nabwana.

The three Khalid Agil Mohammed, Mohammed Osman and a politician Mour Bwanamaka are jointly charged alongside nine Pakistani nationals with trafficking of heroin worth KES 1.3 billion that was nabbed in Kenyan waters in July.

The case will be heard on September 2.
