A director at London Distillers has been charged with making an oath in an affidavit and giving false testimony that he was a director of Galot Indutries and Manchester outfitters limited.
Rajeev Modi was accused of making an oath in an affidavit dated March 2, 2018 sworn before Alice Jonathan, a commissioner for oaths.
Modi is alleged to have filed the affidavit in the chief magistrates court in a criminal case of 2018 knowingly he gave false testimony that he was a director of Galot Industries limited, Manchester outfitters ltd and Kingwollen mills ltd knowing the same to be false.
Modi was charged alongside two others, Pushpinder Singh Mann and Jophece Yogo of convening a meeting purportedly as directors and company secretary of Galot Industries and nominated Modi to swear an affidavit to withdraw the criminal case before magistrates court falsely.
The three denied the charges before Milimani chief magistrate Wendy Micheni and through lawyer asked for lenient bond terms saying the third accused (Yogo) was elderly and from humble background.
They argued that they are innocent until proven guilty.
The court released them on a cash bail of Sh200,000 or a bond of Sh500,000.
The case will be mentioned on June 9.
Previously the High court has stopped the arrest and prosecution of Modi, Mann and Yogo in the unending wrangles pitting Pravin Galot, Rajesh Galot and Narendra Galot over ownership of Galot Industries, Manchester Outfitters (now King Woolen Mills) and Mohan Meakin Kenya (London Distillers Kenya Ltd).
“A stay of any arrest, detention, and or institution of any fresh charges, criminal proceedings or trial of the first to fourth petitioners (Rajeev Modi, Pushpinder Singh Mann and Jophece Yogo), the family members, employees, agents and or servants of the first petitioner similar to the charges facing first to fourth petitioners be and is hereby stayed,” ruled Justice James Makau.
According to court documents, Galot Industries was incorporated on October 3, 1977, while King Woolen Mills (Manchester Outfitters) got its change of name on May 10, 1991.
London Distillers changed its name from Mohan Meakin on November 5, 2008.
