DUO SAYS INTENDED PROSECUTION IS WITCH-HUNT
Former NYS chief Adan Harakhe and committee head Noor Hassan filed an application at the High Court to bar the DPP from authorising or preferring criminal charges against them concerning the loss of millions of shillings at the National Youth Service. But they failed to convince the court. The two, through their lawyer Roger Sagana, had pleaded with the judge to issue temporary orders. They said they were apprehensive the DPP was going to order they take pleas today. The specialised plant equipment and machinery for training materials by the NYS were approved allegedly by the valuation tendering committee. In their suits, the duo says the intended prosecution is a witch-hunt against them as the DPP and the EACC seek to appease their masters. Hassan was the chairman of the ministerial tender committee. He says the decision to purchase the equipment was based on an evaluation report.
