Noordin Haji goes after bank managers who allowed Kabura to withdraw money in sacks
The case was initially filed and prosecuted during Keriako Tobiko's reign at the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.
The DPP had initially entered into talks with some of the suspects to have an out-of-court settlement, an arrangement that Haji has since overruled.
The current DPP said that the eight bank senior managers at Family Bank, who allowed NYS looters to withdraw big cash amounts without due regard to the rules set by the Central Bank of Kenya, should face the full force of the law.
One of the famous transactions was that of the infamous Josephine Kabura who withdrew at least Sh50 million, most of it carried in sacks.
Those who have been charged over the fraudulent transactions include Family Bank CEO John King'ori, former CEO Peter Munyiri, KTDA Branch Manager Robert Oscar Nyaga and Anti-Money Laundering Compliance Manager Charles Kamau.
Others were Head of Risk and Compliance Raphael Mutinda, Operations Supervisor Nancy Njambi, Platinum Relationship Manager Meldon Awino and Customer Service Supervisor Josephine Wairi.
The charge sheet against the suspects indicated that they had “aided and abetted” money laundering by Kabura, by failing to report her suspicious transactions.
CBK requires banks to notify it of any transaction involving more that Sh1 million.
