Kenyan police on trail of a man linked with murder of Venezuelan diplomat
The police requested on Tuesday a bench warrant against Mohammed Hassan, the presumed intimate friend of the first secretary at the Venezuelan Embassy
The Kenyan police released on Tuesday the picture of a suspect in relation to the murder last week of chargé d'affaires Olga Fonseca in order to know his whereabouts.
The man wanted is Muhammed Ahmed Mohammed Hassan, police spokesman Eric Kiraithe confirmed, as quoted by local newspaper Daily Nation, Efe reported.
Dwight Sagaray, the first secretary at the Venezuelan Embassy in Kenya, appeared on Monday at the High Court in Nairobi with regard to Fonseca's murder, even though no charges have been made against him.
The Attorney General Office asked for an extension of the remand in custody of the first secretary, detained last Saturday after being stripped of his diplomatic immunity. The purpose is to give the police enough time to complete the enquiry.
The very early morning after the presidential election (April 15), both candidates requested the National Electoral Council (CNE) to conduct a full audit of the process: one, Henrique Capriles, because he asserts that the election results are different from the ones announced, and the other one, Nicolás Maduro, in order to clear any doubt regarding his victory, and to reinforce his political stance. Nevertheless, as it is already known, President Maduro changed his mind.
