High Court Allows DCI, DPP to be in Deputy Chief Justice Ongoing Case

by Lawyer Wanz

The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) and the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) have been allowed to be enjoined in Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu’s ongoing case.

The two have been directed to file and serve their submissions in the case in which the Deputy Chief Justice is challenging the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) proceedings.

Meanwhile, orders stopping the JSC proceedings have been extended.

Justice Mwilu moved to High Court in August and obtained orders stopping the JSC committee from continuing with the hearing of complaints filed against her by the DPP and DCI.

The complaints seek her removal from office over claims of gross misconduct.
