Deported Norwegian fraudster back in Nairobi

What you need to know:

  • Before the Interpol caught up with him in Nairobi, Dyrnes was in Kenya as a fugitive having escaped prosecution and changed his name to Roger Wilhelmsen.
  • Dyrnes was deported from Kenya under the orders of former Cabinet Secretary for Interior Joseph ole Lenku on May 21, 2014, who declared him persona non grata since Kenya did not have an extradition treaty with Norway.

A convicted Norwegian fraudster who had been deported from Kenya is back in the city “to testify” in a case in which he is accused of fraudulently selling multimillion-shilling properties in Nairobi’s Riverside with forged documents.
