KENYAN DPP TO GO TO JERSEY OVER FRAUD AND MONEY LAUNDERING CASE

On 26th March, Capital News in Kenya reported that the DPP is set to make a trip to Jersey over the fraud and money laundering case against ex-Nambale MP, Chris Okemo, and former Kenya Power and Lighting Company CEO, Samuel Gichuru.  They are accused of abusing their offices by using proxy companies to squander public funds running into hundreds of millions, according to documents that were sent to the Kenyan Government by the bailiff and Chief Justice of Jersey 9 years ago.  Among other things, he will discuss how to circumvent legal hurdles facing their intended extradition.  The Supreme Court is set to hear and determine whether they should be extradited after the Court of Appeal quashed an earlier ruling granting the government permission.  The assets were recovered by the Royal Court of Jersey after Windward Trading Limited, which was at the centre of the scandal, pleaded guilty to 4 counts of money laundering.
