Diamond Trust Bank Eastleigh Branch manager Sophia Mbogo has been charged with aiding the Dusit D2 terror attack . The court said that she failed to flag suspicious transactions amounting to Sh. 34million shillings.
The police said that she had been charged as the branch manager as she failed to report suspicious money laundering acts that occurred between December 4, 2018, and January 5, 2019, at the bank.
Ms Mbogo refuted the claims saying that she never dealt with the money linked to the terror attack directly stating in an affidavit that DTB bank only acted as an agent for Safaricom.
Ms Mbogo was charged along with Hassan Abdi Nur, another suspect, who is said to have registered 52 accounts in the last three months of 2018, 47 of them in October.
The prosecution has applied to the court to deny Sophia Mbogo bail but her lawyer has opposed the application.
This court has a duty to protect the liberty of an individual. The bill of rights is not there for fun. It is time this court takes judicial notice that the state is becoming rogue. If you allow this kind of stuff, we don’t know the far the executive will go,” the lawyer said
