Bank Accounts –High court siting in Nairobi has unfrozen Anne Amadi’s bank accounts after finding out that she was not directly involved in financial fraud as had been claimed.
On Friday, June 9, the High Court ruled that the Chief Registrar’s bank accounts should be unfrozen because the evidence so far tabled by the prosecution lacked to link her to the crime valued at sh 102 million.
The court also determined that the registrar was not involved in the day-to-day running of her law firm which is claimed to have been tasked to supply gold to a Dubai customer.
“There is nothing to show that the first respondent was involved in the day-to-day running of the law firm,” the judge ruled.
Ms Amadi was alleged to have benefited from payments made to the law firm for the purchase of over 1000 kilogrammes of gold.
In her affidavit filed before the High Court on May 23, Ms Amadi countered the accusations by stating that she was not part of the crime, if any.
The money, she said, was never transferred or wired to her personal accounts as is reported by a British businessman.
“I confirm that no such sums relating to the impugned transaction were ever deposited to my personal bank accounts, and the petitioner has failed to tender any evidence that I was a beneficiary of the alleged fraud,” Amadi also stated.
The Court froze Amadi’s accounts on May 19 after the petitioner alleged that money was paid to her law firm for the supply of gold that was not.
Following the court petition, her son was also barred from accessing his bank accounts.
The back and forth culminated into a court case.
