Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu closed property worth 315 million shillings in three months.
The Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Noordin Haji seeks to have the deputy CJ sacked, citing that Justice Mwilu dealings with Imperial Bank and property dealings were linked to tax evasion.
Justice Mwilu is said to have sold three parcels of land for 315 million shillings between March 2016 and July 2016, which was way more than the 155 million shillings plots she had bought with money from the Imperial Bank.
According to Noordin Haji, Justice Mwilu did not pay capital gains tax on the return and stamp duty of four percent of the value of the land she bought between December 2014 and March 2016 for 160 million shillings.
The DPP also says that the DCJ illegally recovered securities of the loans she had taken and sold them, leading to a loss of 60 million shillings.
In December 2014, Justice Mwilu bought two plots of land in Nairobi for 80 million shillings, which she used as security for a 60-million-shilling long term loan.
She failed to offer imperial Bank the property as loan security even after she had sold them for 315 million shillings and only cleared her 65-million-shilling loan.
“It is evident that the respondent has no intentions of charging the said property to imperial Bank and she obviously obtained the said securities by making false representations,” said DPP Noordin Haji.
