On Friday November 24, Ms Amadi announced her sudden departure from office after serving there for a period of 10 years.
“Glad to be proceeding on my terminal leave after ten years of service” – Chief Registrar of the Judiciary, Hon. Anne Amadi
In June, the High Court lifted orders freezing the personal bank accounts of the Chief Registrar of Judiciary which were frozen last month, saying there is nothing to show that she was involved in the day-to-day activities of the law firm registered in her name.
Justice Alfred Mabeya further ruled that there is nothing to show that Ms Amadi benefitted from the Sh100 million allegedly paid by a Dubai-based firm Bruton Gold Trading LLC, for purchasing the 1,500kg bars of gold.
“There is nothing to show that the 1st defendant (Ms Amadi) was involved in day-to-day activities of the law firm or evidence to point that she benefited from the funds,” the judge said.
Ms Amadi was barred last month from using or transferring funds in her personal account and those of her law firm, Amadi and Associates, after the gold trading company claimed to have been defrauded of the millions as the consignment was never delivered to Dubai as agreed.
Justice Mabeya, however, declined to strike out the case as prayed by Ms Amadi and two other lawyers, including her son Brian Ochieng, who admitted receiving the millions for the purchase of the gold in 2021.
