Fraud –Senior Court official and her family have been struck by court orders freezing their bank accounts over suspicious colossal amounts of money.
On Thursday May 18, High Court sitting in Nairobi ordered that personal bank accounts registered in the names of the Chief Registrar of the Judiciary, Anne Atieno Amadi, as well as her son Brian Ochieng Amadi and two others be frozen for receiving money from a Dubai gold company which was not supplied.
This is after a Dubai-based gold-dealing company went to court accusing the registrar of having received the sh 89 million from it.
Bruton Gold Trading LLC claims that the suspects obtained the sum for gold that they never supplied.
The said foreign firm wanted to purchase the gold from Kenya and was introduced by Daniel Ndegwa Kangara to the Amadis.
Kangara was to then export the gold to Dubai after the parties had agreed but this turned into a cat and mouse game to date.
First sh 71 million was sent to Ms. Amadi’s law firm, but that no gold was ever exported from Kenya to Dubai.
Citizen Digital explained that investigations by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) established that Amadi is the registered proprietor of Amadi and Associates Advocates.
They also allege that the probe disclosed that the account where the money was deposited was also opened by Ms. Amadi after joining the Judiciary.
Further, they claim that the funds received by the firm were withdrawn in cash by Ms. Amadi’s son and two others without adequate documentation as required by the Proceeds of Crime and Anti-Money Laundering Act.
The Dubai firm alleges that Ms. Amadi later called them seeking to clear the sum within six months, to which they declined as there was no security performance on the part of defendants.
