Tycoon Mohan Galot charged with Sh 2.5 billion tax evasion

The controversial businessman behind London Distillers Limited has been charged with Sh2.1 billion tax evasion.

Tax evasion charges add to a host of forgery charges which got him arrested in March 2019.

At the time, the 74-year-old Galot had been presented with nine counts of forgery and providing false information. He would later deny the charges and was released on a Sh500,000 cash bail.

The decision to charge Galot was approved by the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) after two years of investigations by the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) which established that the company and its director had allegedly devised various schemes to evade paying taxes.

Chief Magistrate Martha Mutuku granted Galot a cash bail of Sh1 million and directed that the case be mentioned on August 9.
