  • The DPP said that the case where the late tycoon’s wife Sarah Cohen and two others were accused of killing him will now be registered as an inquest. 

The Directorate of Public Prosecution (DPP) has withdrawn Dutch Tycoon Tob Cohen's murder. 

According to the DPP, the case in which the late tycoon's wife Sarah Cohen and two others are accused of murdering him will now be registered as an inquest.

 

"The DPP has directed that this matter be handled via inquest to be filed in the Chief Magistrates court `Milimani Nairobi,” a letter from the DPP reads.

 

“This will enable the contradictions that have affected the proceedings of this matter to be heard in detail by all parties. In addition, this will provide an opportunity for parties to present any information that ahd not been explored substantially before the court," it adds. 


However, the late Cohen's family has opposed the application to have the case withdrawn. 

 

Sarah Wairimu Cohen was charged three years ago and the case has never proceeded.


The body of Cohen, a former CEO of Philips Electronics East Africa, was found dumped in a septic tank at his home in September 2019.
