An accused person allegedly behind the Barclays Bank Ksh.2billion saga wants the court to order the Directorate of Criminal Investigations to produce the money.
Eric Otieno Adede said over Ksh.20billion should be presented in court within 24 hours of the hearing of the filed application.
“The applicant is apprehensive that the DCI might tamper with the aforesaid currency that does not form part of the criminal case thus depriving him of his money,” Adede said.
According to him, the DCI is illegally holding and has continued to withhold the said sums of money that do not form a part of the charges in the criminal case.
He further claimed that the DCI is using the said sums of money and alleging it to be fake, a fact he knows to be untrue, to publicly boost the public profile of the said office and embarrass him at media briefings.
According to the court papers, Adede claims that the DCI is illegally and in bad faith withholding the said sums of money without any legitimate basis nor orders of the court.
