Kenya: Swazuri in court for bail ruling after Easter in remand

Former land commission chairman Muhammad Swazuri and 10 other people will Tuesday morning know whether they will be released on bond.

The eleven denied corruption related charges on Thursday last week and had to spend the Easter holiday behind bars after Senior Principal MagistrateLawrence Mugambi postponed the bail ruling to Tuesday morning.

Some of the suspects were also ordered to present themselves to the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission offices at Integrity House on Tuesday morning without fail. Mr Mugambi direct the police to arrest them should they fail to show up.

In the application for bail, the defence argued that the prosecution, which opposed their release saying they are likely to interfere with the trial, had not tabled evidence to show that the accused had interfered with witnesses or would fail to attend court for the trial.
