The High Court has ordered businessman Jared Kiasa Otieno to forfeit his high-end car to the state in an application made by the Assets Recovery Authority (ARA).
ARA had sought to have Otieno surrender two vehicles, a Porsche Panamera KCD 966L and a Bentley Continental GT 2019 KCU 966C, to the state for allegedly being proceeds of crime.
“It is therefore my finding that the applicant has proved on a balance of probabilities that the motor vehicle KCU 966C is a crime,” said Justice Esther Maina.

Justice Maina, however, noted that she could not deliver a judgement concerning the Porsche Panamera, since a ruling issued by Justice John Onyiego on November 20, 2019, had been appealed at the Court of Appeal by ARA.
In his ruling, Justice Onyiego found that the vehicle was not tied to any criminal activity and was therefore not a proceed of crime.

The two vehicles were registered under two firms associated with Otieno namely; Cleanen Limited and Yugni Holdings Limited.
