Director of Public Prosecution Noordin Haji

Director of Public Prosecution Noordin Haji asked foreign countries to stop Kenyans charged with corruption from traveling abroad.

According to reports, Haji held consultative meetings with ambassadors of various western countries to discuss areas of cooperation and collaboration.

DPP Haji also asked the officials to work out ways of restricting those targeted for corruption cases from traveling abroad.

The Standard reported that the DPP has been asking the envoys to help Kenya get back money believed to have been looted from Kenya and stashed away in their countries.

Looting from public

His office is said to have complied a list of people suspected to have looted from the public coffers which they intend to share with foreign countries.

Officials aware of the happens revealed that countries like the United Kingdom had taken the step to freeze money believed to be stolen from Kenya by government officials.

Meanwhile, DPP Haji and crime buster DCI George Kinoti and EACC CEO Talib Mbarak met Italian ambassador to Kenya Alberto Pieria and talked about fighting graft and related crimes.

Mbarak who confirmed the meeting said: “The discussions centered on possible collaboration between Italy, EACC, DCI and ODPP on capacity building, mutual legal assistance and investigation in combating corruption.”

Offshore accounts

A 2018 report by America’s National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER), indicated that Kenyans hid close to Ksh15 trillion in offshore accounts.

With the World's average of looted funds vis-a-vis the GDP standing at 9.8%, Kenya's ranking is quite alarmingly high.

Other countries in last year's top 10 list according to the report are Venezuela, Zimbabwe, Saudi Arabia, Russia, Israel, Senegal, Argentina and Greece.
