BREAKING: Court Finally Makes Ruling On Tob Cohen's Murder Case Against His Widow Sarah Wairimu

The murder of the late dutch tycoon Tob Cohen whose lifeless body was found abandoned in a septic tank in his own home after missing for several days continue to attract widespread attention from many kenyans and also back in Netherlands where Cohen's relatives are.

Recently, the director of public prosecution Noordin Haji made a move to withdraw the murder charges against Cohen's widow Sarah Wairimu and instead, substitute it with a public inquest.

However, Tob Cohen’s sister Gabriele Van Straten had strongly opposed the withdrawal of the case by Noordin Haji, arguing that the family who are victims were not informed by the DPP that he was going to drop the case.

However, Judge Daniel Ogembo has ruled against Tob Cohen's sister and directed that the case should proceed to a public inquest as requested by the DPP Noordin Haji. The judge said that the DPP is independent and does not need to consult anyone on the decisions he takes.

"Court accepts DPP Noordin Haji’s withdrawal of murder charges against Tob Cohen’s widow Sarah Wairimu; Justice Daniel Ogembo says Haji free to file an inquest," a local media house affirmed.
