Graft, drugs probe: FBI invites Haji, Kinoti to strategise on fighting graft | PRESS REVIEW

7th June, 2019

The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji leaves for the US this weekend as Kenya moves to enlist the Trump administration's help to fight graft and money laundering.

The DPP and the Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) George Kinoti visit the US days after the launch of a major crackdown on dirty money.

The visit comes after similar trips to the UK and Jersey Island, as the two officials seek broad international assistance to smash corrupt networks and repatriate stolen cash stashed abroad.

Three-day visit

During the three-day visit, Haji and Kinoti are expected to hold a series of meetings with the Attorney General (AG) William Barr and Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) director, Christopher Wray.

Officials aware of the trip said corruption, counter-terrorism, organised crime, drug trafficking, human trafficking and intelligence sharing would be the main focus.

A number of prosecutors and detectives will also accompany the DPP and DCI as well as officials from the Asset Recovery Agency.

Haji said the US AG’s office had invited them for the trip to share many issues that affect both countries.

“We will be discussing many issues including graft. You know the FBI is under AG’s office in the US and we are scheduled to meet top detectives there to share various issues,” he said.
