Tob Cohen Sister Sends Emotional Appeal to Ruto Over Withdrawal of Sarah Cohen's Murder Case

The late Tob Cohen sister has pleaded with President William Ruto to step in to prevent the dismissal of the murder case against her brother.

Today, Tuesday, December 6, when DPP Noordin Haji requested that the case be stopped, the case is most likely to be withdrawn.

Gabriele Van Straten expressed her surprise at the dismissal of the case in an interview with Dutch TV, saying she was taken aback by the decision.

She begged Mr. President Ruto, "Please don't allow my brother's murderers walk free."

Additionally, she sent a letter to Dutch Foreign Minister Hoekstra requesting his involvement in the situation.

Last Wednesday, the DPP filed a request to drop the murder charge and reclassify the case as an inquest, removing widow Sarah Cohen and Peter Karanja from the investigation.

Gabriele referred to the new as dreadful and claimed it had a catastrophic impact on her while receiving a phone call regarding the withdrawal of the case.

I've aged ten years overnight, which is terrible—no one had anticipated this, she added.

She claimed that the only thing she has ever wanted in this situation is justice for her late brother's brutal murder.

I don't care about the house because there isn't much left of it, I always said justice must be served," she said.

Dastan Omari and attorney Cliff Ombeta are the Cohen sister's legal counsel. The two were against the DPP's application.
