GABRIEL HANNAH VAN STRATEN The sister to the slain Dutch tycoon Tob Cohen have moved to court seeking to strike out applications by Sarah Wairimu in which she used the name Cohen.
She wants the court to struck out the applications by Sarah Wairimu saying it is incompetent and fatally defective.
“We pray that this Honourable Court be pleased to strike out the name ‘Cohen’ wherever it appears in the pleadings filed wairimu.”She added.
Through her lawyer Danstan Omari, Straten wants the court to Compel the Director of Criminal Investigations(DCI) to submit before the court by way of an affidavit documenting the findings of its investigations relating to the authenticity if at all, of the will made by the late Tob Cohen on the 30th April 2019.
In an application filed in court, Gabriel Van Straten said Wairimu never adopted the name while married to the late Cohen.
Gabriel claimed that Sarah Wairimu Cohen does not exist and is a fictitious person.
“The applications filed before this Court as far and to the extent that they have been filed by one Sarah Wairimu Kamotho Cohen are incompetent and untenable in the eyes of the law for having been filed by a fictitious person and a person unknown to the law and us,” reads court papers.
Through Lawyer Omari, Gabriel says her brother’s relationship with Wairimu had been strained before his death following numerous abuses against him by Wairimu that had forced him to seek divorce.
