Bluebird Aviation director and shareholder Yussuf Abdi Adan wants Director of Criminal Investigations to institute criminal investigations against three money laundering suspects.
Adan has petitioned DCI claiming that three Bluebird Aviation Chairman and CEO Col (Rtd) Hussein Ahmed Farah, General Manager Finance and Administration Hussein Unshur Mohamed and technical Director Mohamed Abdikadir Adan of engaging in massive fraud, tax evasion and money laundering.
The three are said to have registered offshore companies including Amazon International FZC registered in Ajman UAE to launder funds belonging to Bluebird Aviation Ltd.
They have allegedly converted company assets into shares in other companies.
The registered companies allegedly include SafariLink Aviation Ltd, 748 Air Services Kenya, 748 Air Services Barbados and 748 Air Service Dubai Multi-Commodity Centre (DMCC), Mount Hood Investments and Blue Eagle Developers.
The complaint has also alerted Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) Managing Director Jonny Andersen to commence an internal probe against the directors for abuse of designated Airport ALL ACCESS AREAS passes issued to them.
“The monies being transported amounts to huge sums of cash. This is also against the orders issued by the High Court vide a ruling by Honourable Justice Ogola on 18th May 2016.”
Yussuf Abdi Adan has also implicated National Bank of Kenya Chairman Mohamed Hassan who he claims is an interested party in the matter.
Yussuf has filed a civil case at the Milimani Commercial Court seeking to recover more than US$1 billion (Kshs 100billion) embezzled and misappropriated from Bluebird Aviation in the last 26 years.
Yussuf further states that the said directors each holding a 25% stake in the firm continue to enjoy state security yet have conspired to exclude him from the aviation firm operations.
