Tongues are now wagging at the athletics body with officials being charged and released over the unbecoming Rio Olympics fiasco.
Two of National Olympics Committee-Kenya (Nock) officials, vice-chairman Pius Ochieng and Secretary General, Francis K Paul released on a Sh200,000 bond while a third, Chef-de-Mission, Stephen arap Soi, failed to show up in court.
The court was told that he has been admitted at Nairobi Hospital.
The officials will also be reporting twice a week to the Serious Crimes Unit at the Directorate of Criminal Investigation headquarters starting this Friday.
The accused should not appear at any premises owned or controlled by Nock, should not contact any possible witnesses in regards to the ongoing investigation, should deposit their passports in court immediately and should not move out of the country without the express permission of the court.
Proceedings resume September 19.
Soi was released on a bond of Sh50,000 due to health grounds.
The prosecutor says that investigations will stretch as far as from the day the National Trials were conducted, the residential training and up to the manner in which the Kenyan team to Rio Olympic Games was managed to be able to determine if there was criminal culpability against the suspects and any other persons.
