A German national who is suspected of terror links has been nabbed in Mombasa and taken to court.
The suspect identified as Hans-Dieter Wilhelm Schwing was arrested on Tuesday morning following an intelligence statement that he has been aiding foreigners to gain entry into the country unlawfully.
According to reports presented in court by the Anti-Terror Police Unit (ATPU) from the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, Mr Schwing is reported to have been funding terrorists using companies in which he is the managing director.
“The ATPU got intelligence reports that Mr Schwing was aiding access of foreigners in Kenya illegally, some of these people are terrorists,” said State Counsel Nyawinda Oyugi.
The document seen by probing officer Dickson Ndaru reveals that Mr Schwing is the director of Scout Logic, a company that is tasked with travel agencies to assist European citizens to gain entry into the country for unstated business.
The court was also told that Mr Schwing is also the managing director of You Drive, a company that is tasked as a driving school whose aim is to help Europeans to get driving licences in the country by sub-contracting erected driving schools at a fee.
