Charge Sheet

According to DPP Noordin Haji, his office had gathered enough evidence to show that Justice Mwilu had abused her office for personal gain and that the decision to charge the Deputy Chief Justice was not made lightly and was informed by the need to ensure judicial officers comply with the highest standards of integrity.

“The evidence in our possession, reveals that Lady Justice Mwilu abused her office for personal gain, accepted a gift in the form of money in circumstances which undermined public confidence in the integrity of her office, obtained execution of a security belonging to Imperial Bank Limited now in receivership by false pretense, unlawful failure to pay taxes, and conducted herself in disregard of the law," said the Director of Public Prosecutions.
