Diplomat accused of murder gets bail

02 May 2013, 18:40

Nairobi  - A Venezuelan diplomat in Kenya charged with the murder of his ambassador was granted bail on Thursday after nine months in custody, court officials said.

Acting ambassador Olga Fonseca Gimenez was found strangled in her Nairobi home in July 2012.

Dwight Sagaray, who was serving as first secretary at the embassy, is one of seven charged with Fonseca's murder.

Judge Roseline Korir granted Sagaray bail of two million Kenyan shillings ($23,900, 18,100 euros), as well as the guarantee of two sureties each for the same amount, a court official confirmed.

Sagaray was ordered to surrender his passport and remain in Kenya for the trial.

Five Kenyans have also been charged for the envoy's murder, and have been released on bail. Another is on the run.

No start date has been set for the trial.
