Taiwanese deny forgery

A ruling on whether to put on trial eight Taiwanese accused of forging police abstracts will be delivered this morning.

Nairobi principal magistrate Joseph Karanja fixed the ruling date after prosecution closed its case yesterday.

The foreigners, who are each serving one-year jail term for being in Kenya illegally, allegedly forged police abstracts to show their passports had been stolen.
