Fake currency case directed to High Court for extension of time

A Nairobi court has directed a fake currency case to the High Court for extension of time.
Two Nigerians, Mohammed Sani, alias Dr Mustafa, and Ousman Ibrahim Bako have been charged with having Sh112 billion in fake dollars and Euros.
They have denied the charges. The two are in police custody after the High Court declined to grant their bail application.
The case was to be heard in six months but the time has lapsed.
Milimani chief magistrate Francis Andayi directed the case be placed before Justice Luka Kimaru for an extension since the prosecution has closed its case.
Kimaru is expected to make the ruling on Friday.
This will pave the way for the magistrate’s court to set a date for a ruling on whether to put the accused persons on their defence.
Earlier, Justice Kimaru ordered the case be tried expeditiously after the prosecution sought extension of time.
The two were charged with allegedly possessing forged papers on January 14 and 15 at Diamond Park II Estate.
