Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji has said he found no evidence to sustain two charges against former Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i.
Consequently, Haji ordered the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) to close the file.
“Consequently after a thorough and independent analysis of the evidence contained in the duplicate police file forwarded to my office for perusal and advice… I find that the ingredients to sustain the proposed charge against Dr Fred Okeng’o Matiang’i have not been met. I, therefore, direct the inquiry file to be closed with no further police action,” said Haji.
In his letter to Inspector General of Police Japheth Koome and copied to DCI boss Mohammed Amin, Haji said that the DCI had sent him an inquiry file with the intention to have Matiang’i and his lawyer charged with two offenses.
The first charge proposed by the agency was a conspiracy to commit a felony contrary to section 393 of the Penal Code.
