City tycoon Mohan Galot and his wife Santosh have been allowed to go to Dubai to attend their daughter’s wedding.
They were temporarily dispensed from appearing for the mentions of the fraud case they are facing at Milimani Law Courts.
They appeared before Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi yesterday and asked that they be allowed to attend last born daughter’s wedding in Dubai on November 20, 2017.
Their lawyer Prof Tom Ojienda told the court that the accused are not a flight risk as they have co-operated with the orders of the court before in other matters.
Prof Ojienda said that his clients will not be able to attend court hearing scheduled for November 8, 2017 as they are required to prepare for the wedding.
“The couple will return back to the country at the end of the year after the wedding,” said prof Ojienda.
“The preparation for the wedding requires at least two weeks according to Indian Customs,” lawyer Karathe Wandugi appearing with Prof Ojienda said.
The tycoon and his wife, Santosh Galot, have been charged with forgery claims touching on alleged transfer of a prime property belonging to the Galot family business empire, without consensus of other directors.
They were charged with 22 counts of fraud after the high court overturned magistrate’s decision not to charge the tycoon on September 3, 2017.
The matter will be heard on November 8, 2017 in the absence of the two.
