Police arrest three judicial officers in a fake court fines scheme after forging receipts amounting to Ksh161,000 and facilitating the release of suspects.

The National Police Service has exposed a syndicate running a fake court fines scheme used to release suspects in custody.

The well-choreographed scheme was unearthed after police officers arrested three judicial officers.

The trio is suspected of conspiring and issuing fake receipts for payment of court fines and forfeitures and subsequent release of accused persons from either Court or Police stations.

A court assistant who was nabbed during the operation is believed to be at the centre of the scheme busted by detectives.

According to the National Police Service, the three were nabbed by officers from Nunguni Police Post, Makueni County.

“Police in Nunguni Police Post, Makueni County on 27/02/2024 detained three judicial officers among them Court Assistant Nelson Munyaka, Accountant David Mwaura and Court Driver William Musembi,” the police statement read in part.

 “Today, forged receipts amounting to Kshs 161,000 were verified and established to have been issued between Feb 14, 2024, and Feb 16, 2024, in respect to some traffic cases where accused persons had pleaded guilty and fined,” police indicated.

The suspects are assisting the Police with the investigation. They are believed to have set foot in Makueni where several suspects have managed to walk without facing the law.
