Tobiko orders arrest of 13 Anglo Leasing goons
02 March 2015, 15:23
Nairobi - Director of Public Prosecutions DPP Keriako Tobiko has ordered for the arrest of 13 people involved in Anglo Leasing type cases.
The DPP said in a statement Monday that his office had gathered enough evidence to order for the prosecution of the 13 persons and three organizations for their handling of the contracts.
" I have today directed all the 13 individuals and three corporate
entities recommended by EACC to be charged, be taken to court forthwith
to face various criminal charges," he said.
The Anglo-Leasing scandal dates back to late 2003 when the
Department of Immigration under the Office of the Vice President and
Ministry of Home Affairs took a loan for the purpose of procuring
equipment to improve and boost security.
The contract involved issuance of secure passports and security equipment that would be installed at Kenyan borders.
Tobiko said that the 13 will be charged with various offences such as conspiring to commit economic crimes, acquiring property fraudulently and engaging in a project without prior planning.
They will further be charged with abuse of office, failure to comply with procurement laws, disobedience of statutory duty and breach of trust.
Tobiko said the directive followed an analysis of three Anglo leasing files submitted by the EACC last week.
