Humphrey Kariuki tax evasion case: Prosecution seeks 21 more days

State lawyers in the Humphrey Kariuki tax evasion case want three more weeks to enable them supply witness statements and other relevant documents.

Assistant Director of Public Prosecutions Vincent Monda told the court that the documents sought are voluminous.

They include 10 boxes of invoices.

The Prosecution noted that they had supplied some statements to the defence team but there are more pending.

Defence lawyers Kioko Kilukumi and Cecil Miler confirmed that they had been supplied with 27 witness statements and 23 exhibits on Wednesday.

They however urged the court to direct the Prosecution to supply all other documents by September 20 instead of 26th as had been requested.

Chief Magistrate Martha Mutuku ruled that the prosecution comply and the two files be mentioned on September 26.

Mutuku was holding brief for Trial Magistrate Francis Andayi who has been presiding over the case.

The court further directed that Prosecution ensures documents are served to the defence before September 20.

They are also to have the inventory duly signed by the defence team on or before September 26.
