DPP exposes MP Bailing Out NYS suspects

The Director of Public Prosecution(DPP),Noordin Haji, on Tuesday exposed a number of MPs who were helping out key NYS suspects in securing the Sh8 million cash bail imposed on them by the court.

On Thursday,the DPP revealed that a letter from the Assets Recovery Agency (ARA) details how Sh100 million was transferred to an account belonging to a Member of Parliament, although he failed to mention the MP to the media since investigations were underway.

The letter,received by the office of the DPP,indicate Sh3 million was withdrawn even before bail was sought and granted to suspects of the multi-billion NYS scam.

Mr Haji added that the money may have been used to pay out the cash bail of some of the suspects.

On Wednesday, the DPP directed the DCI boss George Kinoti to ensure funds presented as bail by NYS suspects are not proceeds of crimes they are charged with.

The 48 suspects in the scandal involving Sh 9 billion were reprieved on Tuesday,following High Court’s decision to grant them release pending their trial.

Earlier today, Justice Hedwig Ong’udi freed the 43 suspects on Sh5 million bond with sureties of Sh2 million each, with concurrent cash bails of Sh1 million each.

However, most of the suspects-including the Ngirita family from Naivasha-argued that the amount is too high given the fact that their accounts are frozen.
