The Director of Criminal Investigation George Kinoti has been ordered to produce the original will of the late Tob Cohen in a succession case.
Trial judge Mugure Thande gave the directive following an application by the family late Cohen during the hearing of a succession case.
Lawyer Danstan Omari said the will provided by the DCI boss will enable Cohen’s sister Gabrielle Hannah van Straten to point out the difference, if any, with the one presented by Tob’s widow Sarah Wairimu Kimotho.
She told the court during cross examination that Wairimu was assisted by her defense lawyer Philip Murgor to forge Tob’s will.
The witness told the court that she reported the matter to the police and Murgor was supposed to be arrested and charged but the Director of Public Prosecution Noordin Haji declined to consent to the charge.
She subsequently filed a petition seeking the removal of the DPP from office.
Gabrielle testified that it is the only original will that will assist the court to make an informed decision.
Cohen’s body was found in a septic tank in his compound three years ago. His wife Sarah and Peter Karanja have been charged with his murder are out on bond.
