Two businessmen were arraigned in court over allegations of obtaining money by false pretenses.
Mohammed Akabar Rashi and Yulian Pentrov Stankov (Bulgarian) were arrested on May 9, at Lavington Mall in Nairobi in connection with the offence.
In an application before a Nairobi court, the investigators asked to be allowed to detain the two for five days, as they complete investigations.
“Several exhibits namely mobile phones and profoma invoice for Africargo Limited were recovered,” said investigation officer Stanley Musembi.
The court heard that the phones need to be taken for forensic examination at the cybercrime unit while the invoices need to be authenticated by the Registrar of Companies.
The investigators believe Stankov is a foreigner and his nationality is unknown since he did not have any identification documents. The officer said he needed to contact Immigration Department to verify his documentation.
The court however ordered that Stankov be detained for three days at Gigiri police station while Rashi was released on cash bail of Sh 50,000 and directed to report to the Investigating officer on daily basis.
Investigating officers applied the two to be detained for five days pending investigations into alleged offence.
The matter to be mentioned next week.
