Court orders extradition of Kenyan to the US over money laundering

Milimani Chief magistrate court has today ordered an extradition of Kenyan wanted in the US for charges of money laundering.

The court gave the orders following an application by the  Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) seeking to have Abdulrahman Imraan Juma extradited over charges including money laundering, conspiracy to commit wire fraud and aggravated identity theft.

The court ruled that there’s no evidence presented in court to show that he will not be accorded a fair trial in the US adding that the prosecution had laid down the threshold for the suspect to be extradited.

It was noted that investigations were done by the US agencies adding that witnesses in the case are not in Kenya.

Further the court added that three of the fugitives are currently in the US awaiting trial.

“Us will accord him a fair trial …..I hereby allow an application by the state and order that he be taken to the US to face trial,”court noted

However through his lawyers Juma asked the court to stay the orders pending an appeal.

The court said that the matter be mentioned in Monday before the trial court.

Juma is alleged to be part of an international gang that conspires to commit wire fraud and aggravated identity theft by targeting unsuspecting business people who need loans.

The fugitive is said to have worked with Nigerian influencer Ramon Abbas – also known as Hushpuppi – to defraud a Qatari school founder.

The charges, filed against him in the US District Court for the Central District of California, state that he faces up to 61 counts of money laundering, conspiracy to commit wire fraud and aggravated identity theft.

Documents filed by the DPP in Nairobi show that Juma and his accomplices target business people based in the US and Qatar and hoodwinked them that they could offer loans worth millions of dollars.
