The wife of the Dutchman Tob Cohen, who disappeared in Kenya, has to be examined psychologically by the Kenyan judge. According to local media, the judge wants to know quickly if Sarah Wairimu Kamotho is able to follow a case against her for missing her husband.
The woman is stuck in the meantime. She was arrested last month and a second suspect has now been arrested, media reports.
Her lawyer, Philip Murgor, argues that his client is being sexually harassed in prison by a detective and that she should await the trial in freedom.
The judges consider the risk of the 52-year-old suspect tampering with evidence or influencing witnesses to be too great. She is already suspected that two staff members have made false statements in this case.
Cohen, the former Philips chief in East Africa, has been engaged in divorce for quite some time. The 69-year-old man has been missing since 19 July and the police assume that the wife has made him disappear.
Kamotho states that Cohen left on his own with an unknown destination.
