Kenya – The trial of three suspects in connection with the September 2013 terrorist attacks in Kenya will take place on Tuesday, a court in the capital Nairobi has ruled.
The judgement was supposed to be handed down on Monday, but the court postponed it, local media reported.
Chief Justice Francis Anday said on Monday that the verdict was not ready for delivery as some sections had to be linked, the Daily Nation reported.
The sentence is postponed most of the time. One of the other delays took place on September 18, postponing the verdict until October 5.
Hussein Hassan Mustafa, Lebanese Abdullah Omar and Mohamed Ahmed Abdi were arrested a few weeks after the attack on the Westgate Mall in Nairobi. A number of charges have been filed against them, including conspiracy to commit a terrorist act, aiding a terrorist group, and being in the country illegally. A fourth suspect had previously been released.
At least 67 people have been killed and dozens injured in an attack by the Al-Shabaab terrorist group in Somalia.
The gunmen behind the attack are believed to have died as the Kenyan military took control of the mall.
Although the incident took place seven years ago, prosecutors spent more than five years gathering evidence against the suspects, in part because more than 145 witnesses offered to testify.
