The hunt for business tycoon Humphrey Kariuki has been expanded to the European continent after detectives reported to have traced him in London.
This comes five days after Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Noordin Haji gave a nod to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) to arrest and charge him with evasion of taxes.
Prosecutors are seeking an international arrest warrant for Kariuki to be handed back to Kenya where he faces a Ksh.41 billion tax evasion case.
Over the weekend, detectives were baffled during a raid at one of the businessman’s properties, Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club.
The detectives were eyeing his vast wealth at the Nanyuki hotel but were shocked to discover only a few valuable movable items.
On arriving at the establishment, the investigators failed to locate two private jets which they were targeting.
