Four suspected terrorists behind Westgate shopping mall attack have been denied bail. Nairobi Chief Magistrate Kiarie Waweru has declined to release the four on bail cited security concerns in the country as reason behind his ruling.
Waweru added that public safety supersedes individual rights not to be detained. The accused are Mohamed Ahmed Abdi, Liban Abdullah Omar, Adan Mohamed and Hussein Hassan Mustafah.
The magistrate also noted that investigations regarding the suspects are underway in various countries and releasing them could jeopardise such. The case will be mentioned on December 18, 2013.
