Music Copy Right Society of Kenya (MCSK) chief executive Milcah Kulati has been freed on a cash bail of Sh300,000.
This is after she denied she denied conspiring jointly with two others to forge sale agreements of nine motor vehicles, the property of MCSK between April 1 and November 30, 2018.
Kulati, Henry Mungai and Stephen Kamau Wabacha were charged with conspiracy to commit a crime and forgery of sale agreements of the vehicles to third parties.
Milimani senior resident magistrate Carolyne Muthoni Njagi heard that the accused did not participate in fraud because the MCSK board resolved to sell the used cars.
“Kulati is the CEO of MCSK, and all she did was to witness the sale of the vehicles after board resolution,” said defence lawyer Duncan Okubasu.
Okubasu argued that Kulati had to witness the sale agreements, which have nothing to do with forgery urging the court to free the suspects on reasonable bond terms given that they had been out on a police bond of Sh50,000.
The State prosecutor Winnie Moraa did not oppose the bail plea.
Wabacha and Mungai were released on a cash bail of Sh200,000 each.
The case will be mentioned on August 9, 2021.
