British citizens sentenced for illegal access at Wilson airport

Four British nationals have been fined Sh200,000 each or 12 twelve months in prison for entering a restricted area and refusing to follow lawful instructions.

Edwin Swift, Paul William Abbott, Stephen Gibson and Ian James Glover pleaded guilty to the charges at a Makadara court on Monday.

The four were charged that on March 11, they were arrested at East African Air Charter Hanger Airside without authority.

They also refused to cooperate with security officers.

The four had initially appeared before the same court last Monday but could not take plea after police requested two more days to complete investigations.

Police had preferred two other charges against them of secretly filming air traffic while at airport bar and using an app to monitor incoming flight times.

Although the two charges appeared on the charge sheet, they were formally dropped.
