DCI George Kinoti, Kemri chairman Dr Naphtali Agata and Director General Prof Yeri Kombe were present during the occasion. Haji said the training of DCI officers in forensic and DNA analysis would improve the rate of convictions in criminal cases. “Through these techniques and technologies in forensic and DNA analysis, sex offenders in particular will be successfully prosecuted in court,” he said. He said failure to effectively gather evidence in the criminal investigation process can have serious consequences, leading to unresolved crimes, failed prosecution, acquittal of offenders and wrongful convictions. “It is no doubt that these officers will contribute immensely in ensuring the evidence presented in court is impartial and credible,” said Haji.
