DPP Noordin Haji invetigations graft cases

The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji has refused to proceed with 10 graft cases in court returning them to the EACC for further investigations.

According to the Star, the cases are among 91 presented by the anti-corruption body for prosecution.

They range from high profile corruption cases involving billions of shillings to petty offences involving bribery cases with as low Ksh10,000

A high profile case that has been sent back for additional investigations is the Ksh1.5 Billion Ruaraka land scandal in which the DPP implicated at least 10 cabinet secretaries.

Earlier on, Haji told the Senate’s Justice and Legal Affairs Committee that part of the million lost in the Ruaraka Land scandal had been traced to Mauritius.

Other cases the EACC presented included those of abuse of office and unethical conduct by civil servants.

66 files were recommended for prosecution and seven for administrative action.

Only 15 of the 66 cases recommended for prosecution have been filed in court.

On Sunday, the DPP disclosed that he has constantly received death threats against him and his family from different quarters due to his work.

He, however, added that nothing would deter him from delivering his mandate and what he believes is best for the country.

“I believe in God and that my destiny is determined by Him and no human. ,” Haji added.
