A Pakistan car dealer in Mombasa suspected to have evaded paying tax amounting to over Sh. 2 billion has been charged for failing to submit a tax return and declare the amount of money he had earned from the business.
Riasat Ali Khan who has been doing car dealer business in Mombasa since 2013 was also charged along with his employees whom he made directors on three companies linked to him. Khan who was represented by lawyer Charles Opulu denied the 10 counts of failing to pay tax and declaration of his earning along with his other directors of the three companies.
Mombasa Senior Resident Magistrate Martin Rabera, however, released Raisat Ali Khan on Sh. 10 million bond with similar sureties. His co-accused are Khan Sultan Ali, Ali Aden, Ifttikar Adalat Ahmed, MuhamedAdil, Mohamed Afhan , Tanveet Ahmad and Rana Auto Selection company. The accused who were not present were however summoned by Rabera to appear in court on June 18 after Kenya Revenue Authority prosecutor Moses Ado successfully applied for it.
