Mombasa,KENYA:Director of public prosecution DPP has asked the Mombasa court to ensure that an inquest file of a British tycoon is placed under lock and key.

Harry Veevers from United Kingdom died a mysterious death in his Nyali home in February 2013.His body is still lying at Coast General Hospital Mortuary.

According to Deputy Director of prosecution Mr. Alexandar Muteti the circumstances revolving around the inquest case might result to the lose of the file.

The Court on Thursday ordered son of the deceased Mr. Richard Veevers to make an application through Attorney General requesting Interpol police to be involved in the inquest.

This is after his lawyer Mr. Kamundi Kinyua informed the court that Police from United Kingdom were willing to be involved in the inquest at no cost.

Mr.Richard has alleged his step mother Azra Parveen Din and sister Alexandar Veevers and Hellen Veevers were involved in the death.

The body of the deceased was exhumed following a court order after his son filed an application to open an inquest file.

Mombasa Chief Magistrate Julius Nang’ea also ordered Richard to ensure CCTV footage are taken to police for examination and share with the prosecution before they are presented in courts.

The case is set to be heard on 24th April 2017.
