Jersey agrees to return money laundering assets to Kenya
09 Mar 2017

The agreement between both governments comes after the assets were confiscated by the Royal Court of Jersey in February 2016, when defendant company Windward Trading Limited pleaded guilty to four counts of laundering the proceeds of corruption.

The corrupt activities took place in Kenya where Windward’s beneficial owner, Samuel Gichuru, is resident.

During the indictment period, Gichuru was also the chief executive of Kenya Power and Lighting Company, the Kenyan government’s electricity utility company.
