Tobiko: Protect prosecutors, investigators and judicial officers

01 April 2015, 12:32 Nechesa Chemoi

Nairobi - The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Keriako Tobiko has called for the protection of prosecutors, investigators and judicial officers, following the murder of Ugandan prosecutor Joan Kagezi.

Kagezi, the top Ugandan state prosecutor in the trial of 13 men accused of a deadly al-Shabaab bomb attack that killed more than 70 people, was shot dead by men on a motorbike on Monday in Kampala.

“It is indeed a dark week for the administrators of justice in Uganda, the East African region and the world at large following the brutal murder of Kagezi,” the DPP said in a statement.

Tobiko said Kagezi was a focused and passionate prosecutor, having worked with the Kenyan and Tanzanian law enforcement agencies at the initial stages of the investigations into the Kampala bombing of 2010 by Al Shabaab terrorists.

“The demise of Kagezi, underscores the need for governments to urgently look into the security of prosecutors, investigators and judicial officers handling emerging and transnational organized crimes,” Tobiko said.

According to Tobiko, the security of law enforcement officers can no longer be taken for granted in light of the upsurge in international organized crime that these officers have to deal with on a daily basis.

“The incident has the potential of emboldening other organized criminal gangs keen on slowing down prosecutions which could paralyze the criminal justice system,” he said.
