Interpol deport Feisal from Tanzania, arrest him in Kenya

19 August 2015, 21:32 Ken Wekesa

Mombasa - Suspected ivory trafficking kingpin, Feisal Mohamed was deported back to Kenya by the Tanzanian police officers through the Namanga border and the warrant of arrested against him implemented.

An Interpol officer, Japheth Gekonge informed the court that he led a team of 3 officers to Tanzania after receiving an intelligence report that the suspect had been spotted in Dar es Salaam.

Feisal had been summoned to appear before the court to respond to charges of ivory trafficking that had been seized at a warehouse in Tudor but failed to appear in court.

During the cross examination, Gekonge informed the court upon an inquiry at the Tanzanian immigration office that Feisal was illegally present in Tanzania.

“We did not have the jurisdiction to arrest Feisal in Tanzania and we had to inform the Tanzanian Authority of his whereabouts,” said Gekonge.

Feisal by that time had been classified in the Interpol red notice alert as one of the most dangerous criminals in the world dealing in ivory smuggling business from the Trans African region to Europe and Asia.

He further informed the court that he was not aware of the court summon that led to the issuing of the warrant of arrest.

“Feisal informed us that he was aware of the court summon and was to report to the police upon reporting back to Kenya,” said Gekonge.

A CID officer, Tom Juma who was part of the investigating team, was put to task by principal magistrate Davies Karani as to why he had failed to apprehend the directors of Fiji motors when they arrived at the scene.

“I was working under instruction from my seniors and during the operation I was receiving instructions from the OCS Peter Mbua," Juma said.

He added that they had been informed that the two Indian men who were at the scene during the operation were visitors and had no information about the consignment.

Juma’s statement had contradicted OCS Mbua's statement which had indicated that the two men inside the yard were school going children.
