As detectives probing the murder of Dutch businessman Tob Cohen hunt down three suspects believed to have been at his residence where the murder was executed, a letter written eight days before he mysteriously disappeared has emerged online.
In the letter penned to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji, and copied to the Inspector-General of Police, Hillary Mutyambai on 12 July this year, the late tycoon outlined how instruments of justice were being abused to make his life hard.
The letter was sent through his lawyer Mogaka and Co Advocates and shared by mpasho.co.ke
“Unless your offices act speedily and accordingly, our client will continue to suffer humiliation, discrimination, and persecution because he is not a Kenyan national, which is wrong, distasteful and unfortunate. My client is astonished at the manner in which the law is being applied to his disadvantage since no step has been taken by police officers at Parklands Police Station to prosecute Ms. Wairimu despite enough evidence demonstrating her guilt.”
Cohen was reported missing on July 20 and his search ended when a badly decomposed body was found inside a septic tank in his compound on Friday afternoon, September 13.
When Cohen’s body was unearthed from the underground tank, DCI George Kinoti was shocked by its state.
“He was bound, hands, legs, and the neck, before he was murdered and then they hid him in an underground water tank,” he told members of the press.
“Cohen was murdered in his own residence. It is a gruesome murder. They took their time to kill innocent Cohen. I will not describe much now, but in the subsequent unfolding of events,” Kinoti added.
