Court rules in favour of man convicted of illegal importation of arms

27 January 2014, 19:06 Ken Wekesa

Mombasa - A Mombasa law court on  reviewed the bond terms of a case against an American charged with illegal possession and importation of ammunition.

Senior Magistrate Richard Odenyo in his ruling said that the accused was unable to find the two bond sureties of Kenyan origin.

Earlier, prosecutor Simon Waithaka had prayed the court to reject the bond review application made by Roberts’s defense.

Waithaka had requested the court to maintain the bond terms against Roberts because the charges against him were serious.

“The accused is charged with importing firearms. He is a threat to our national security. Kenya is being attacked by Al Shabaab and we do not know where and how they found these fire arms. I would request the court not to review the bond term,” said Waithaka.

The defense council, Aaron Wandera said that the accused had difficulties getting the Kenyan surety since he did not know any Kenyan.

“He has been in the country since June last year and getting the surety seems difficult at the moment,” said Wandera.

Wandera said the accused was willing to comply with any requirement set by the court even if he has to report to a police station on a daily basis.

Roberts was charged on December 23, 2013 with four counts of importing five guns and 243 rounds of ammunition in Changamwe district within Mombasa County. He also faces another charge of not having an import permit.
