Sarah Wairimu Cohen on Tuesday filed an application at the High Court seeking to have Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) George Kinoti detained for contempt of court.

Sarah, who was charged with killing her husband Tob Cohen, claimed that the DCI disobeyed court orders issued on September 16, 2019.

High Court Judge Jessie Lessit last month barred the DCI as well as the prosecution from addressing the media on the investigations and evidence in the murder of the Dutch tycoon.

Through lawyer Phillip Murgor, Sarah argued that DCI Kinoti disregarded the court orders by inferring her guilt.

The court stated that the application to have DCI Kinoti detained, in which State Prosecutor Juma Victor Owiti and a journalist are also named, will be heard on October 30.

According to Sarah, Prosecutor Awiti published an article on his Facebook page disguised as an academic post while implying she’s guilty.

In the case, Sarah denied one charge of killing her husband Tob Cohen and is out on a cash bail of Ksh. 2 million.

Justice Stella Mutuku, while freeing Sarah on October 11, faulted the Prosecution for stating lack of abode as a reason to deny the accused bail or bond.

The Judge maintained that there was no dispute that her residence was taken over by the DCI as a scene of crime.
