BY SAM ALFAN.

The appeal court has suspended an extradition case where former Cabinet Minister Chrisantus Okemo and former Kenya Power and Lighting Company Samuel Gichura are summoned by a UK court.

Three appellate court judges adjourned the matter on grounds that Okemo and Gichuru were not ready for the hearing.

It also gave them 21 days to file written submissions.

The two are to face charges in Jersey Island relating to money laundering.

Okemo and Gichuru are wanted  by Jersey authorities to face Sh900 million money-laundering charges.

They were released on a Sh1 million cash bail.
