SEE ALSO :Haji, DCI in Italy for dams’ stolen cashThe DPP had earlier directed the Directorate of Criminal Investigations to arrest National Treasury CS Henry Rotich, his PS Kamau Thugge and 25 other state officials over the multi-billion dams scandal. The suspects are to be charged with abuse of office, conspiracy to defraud contrary to the law, engaging in a project without proper planning, flouting public finance management procedures and disregarding the procurement rules in awarding Italian CMC di Ravenna the contract. He noted that the National Treasury inflated the amount of the project from Sh46 billion by an additional Sh17 billion adding more tax burden on the taxpayer. Mr Haji said that given the international nature of the economic crime in question, his office had roped in other foreign governments and plans are underway to effect assets recovery in the interest of the public. He said Italian and British governments are ready to join in to help in the fight against economic crime.
