CRIM APP 26 OF 2018 - DPP vs Lawrence Kuria Warachi

Summary: The DPP appealed the trial court's decision on grounds that the trial magistrate erred in law in acquitting the accused. The court in reviewing the evidence adduced at the trial court concluded that while indeed there was foul play as stated by PW2 as collusion between unnamed company officials and the preceding Land registrar, the prosecution did not lead any evidence to establish that the respondent was part of this foul play, or that it was indeed the defendant who failed to act with due diligence when he issued the title deeds and continued to acquit the respondent on grounds of insufficient evidence.
