South Sudanese man has been charged with forging immigration stamps
South Sudanese man has been charged with forging immigration stamps and being in Kenya illegally.
The charge sheet says Toni Taban Suliman Malish forged an impressed rubber stamp purporting it to be a genuine one from the Immigration department of Kenya with others not present in court.
The prosecution told the court that they intend to oppose his release on bail.
During the court proceedings, chief magistrate Mutuku realised the suspect had another case with a warrant of arrest against him.
In the case, he was accused of failing to pay Sankara hotel a bill of Sh190,000.
“You asked for time so that you could pay the bill but you never came back to court to explain whether you paid,” the magistrate said.
Malish said he had paid the bill and his lawyer had informed him there was no need to come back to court.
State prosecutor Anderson Gikunda confirmed that the bill had been paid and asked the court for one more day to avail Sankara representative for withdrawal of the case.
“The Sankara hotel manager is seeking more time to avail himself to withdraw the charges,” Gikunda told the court.
Mutuku directed the matter be mentioned for formal withdrawal.
