NYS sus­pects to be charged with money laun­der­ing

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

The al­leged mas­ter­minds of the Sh791 mil­lion Na­tional Youth Ser­vice scan­dal were dealt a ma­jor blow yes­ter­day when the High Court or­dered that they be charged with money laun­der­ing. Dis­miss­ing seven ap­pli­ca­tions filed by the sus­pects, Jus­tice Joseph Onguto (pic­tured) said Di­rec­tor of Pub­lic Pros­e­cu­tions Ke­ri­ako To­biko did not abuse his pow­ers in pre­fer­ring charges against the 11 sus­pects. He said their pros­e­cu­tion is jus­ti­fied and the DPP’s de­ci­sion has a fac­tual foun­da­tion.
