Mombasa Court allows Kenya Revenue Authority to verify 82 containers allegedly loaded with imported black tea

A Mombasa court has granted the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) full access to 82 suspicious containers at Mombasa port that were allegedly laden with imported black tea.
Cup of Joe Limited imported 82 forty-foot containers labeled as black tea from Iran and Vietnam between April and June 2021, according to KRA.
According to a statement released by KRA on Friday, High Court Judge John Mativo has ordered that the containers detained by KRA be verified after receiving advice from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) that the shipment is under criminal investigation for numerous infractions.
“The offenses include the financing of terrorism, irregular importation, concealment and misdeclaration,” KRA said.
The company has sought judicial review of KRA’s decision not to release the containers.
The verification is taking place at the Regional Logistics Container Freight Station (CFS), Miritini, according to KRA.
