A witness in the case of the murder of Venezuelan Ambassador Olga Fonseca in Kenya 2012 told a court in Nairobi on Wednesday that the diplomatic mission would use the diplomatic bag for drug-trafficking purposes.

"I am aware that the embassy was used to traffic drugs using the diplomatic bag," said former embassy driver Kevin Lameck, AFP reported.

Fonseca, aged 57, was found strangled to death in her residence in Nairobi in July 2012.

Seven people have been accused in the case, including Dwight Sagaray, the then first secretary of the embassy.

Lameck's statement was issued during cross-examination by Sagarya's defense Lawyer Katwa Kigen.

Amid allegations of drug-trafficking involving the embassy, Venezuelan authorities commented the embassy was seized by internal labor disputes.
