NAIROBI, KENYA: Director of Public Prosecution Noordin Haji wants foreign countries to stop Kenyans charged with corruption from traveling abroad.

Haji has been holding consultative meetings with ambassadors of various western countries to discuss areas of cooperation and collaboration.

“DPP to share a list of persons charged with corruption with a view to restricting them from traveling to those countries,” Haji said.

He met 11 envoys on Tuesday in Nairobi before he left for Italy for official duty.

The DPP alongside DCI George Kinoti and Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission CEO Twalib Mbarak met Italian ambassador to Kenya Alberto Pieria and talked about fighting graft and related crimes.

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

The teams have been visiting various foreign countries in a push for cooperation and collaboration in war on corruption.

The countries include the UK and USA, which have apparently pledged to help in the war on graft.

It is not the first time these countries have threatened to ban the suspects from visiting the places. But the latest move by the DPP seems to be a step forward in the efforts to actualize the same.
