Sarah Wairimu Cohen, the prime suspect in the death of Dutch Businessman Tob Cohen failed to take a plea for the fourth time on Tuesday as claims of her lawyer Philip Murgor being a public prosecutor took center stage.
The suspect will remain in custody until Thursday when the court will rule on her representation by Murgor.
The prosecution led by Catherine Mwaniki said it has confirmed that the gazette notice of lawyer Philip Murgor’s appointment as a public prosecutor was never revoked.
Last week, Ms Mwaniki had asked the court to give her a week to confirm whether the gazette notice where Murgor was appointed as a public prosecutor was revoked.
Murgor, however, insisted that he resigned as a public prosecutor on March 7 and accused the prosecution of wasting the time of the court.
The court said it will rule on whether Murgor is still working for the Director of Public Prosecutions.
Murgor, last week, told the court that he had resigned as a public prosecutor and had even sent a resignation later to the Director of Public Prosecution Nordin Haji.
The lawyer of the late Tob Cohen, Cliff Ombeta, however, said that the resignation letter could not be adopted by the court because such a letter cannot revoke a gazette notice.
