Six suspects nabbed with Sh2.9 billion on Tuesday at the Queens Way Barclays branch appeared in court today.
The six; Erick Adede, Ahmed Shah, Elizabeth Muthoni, Irene Wairimu Kimani, Boaz Ochich and Charles Manzi were arraigned at the Milimani Law Courts.
Police sought to hold the suspects for 10 days pending investigations into the fake currency matter.
Their lawyer were against the application as the six have been in custody longer than is required.
Barclays on Wednesday handed over another safe box belonging to Adede, a businessman cum politician.
“We immediately reported it and subsequently handed over the box to the DCI. This is in keeping with our zero-tolerance approach to all forms of criminal activity and our commitment to assist with the investigation,” the bank said.
In the box, they said, was fake gold of an unknown value.
A defense lawyer, has however maintained that claims that the money in 100-US-dollar denominations is fake are yet to be determined.
The magistrate will make a ruling on the application at 2.30 PM.
