Malindi, KENYA: Police in Malindi currently being probing the disappearance of a title deed from the Malindi Law courts registry.

The document had been given to the court as surety for three suspects currently out on bond and who are currently facing fraud charges.

Last week two employees of the court were arrested before they were later released.

The court had earlier heard that the three suspects Aweys Mohamed, Zein Mohamed, and James Muturi together with others not before court conspired to forge documents belonging to the late Tycoon Tahir Said Sheikh with an intention of defrauding him of shillings 28 million.

The case was filed by the widow of the late Tycoon Aisha Tahir Sheikh.

The three denied the charges and on 21st November 2018, the court released the three of them on a cash bail of 3 million or a bond of 4 million and sureties of similar amounts to which the suspects deposited the title deeds.

The case is expected to come up for hearing in March.
