DPP, EACC exchange barbs over weak corruption cases

0 387

Ethics  and Anti Corruption Commission has defended itself from attacks that they lack relevance in the fight against corruption.

Early today when appearing before senate Justice committee  the DPP Noordin Haji accused the EACC,  of presenting weak cases leading to rejections of many case files including  three recent files  implicating governors on graft.

But in a quick rejoinder  EACC chief executive officer Halakhe Waqo defended the commission saying  99%   of the files have gone through a  sucessful prosecution with another 79% conviction made by court.

Meanwhile the DDP  Noordin Haji says he will only receive and handle watertight files with proper evidence something that is still lacking at EACC.

There have been calls for disbandment of EACC with some members of parliament arguing  that only DCI should carry out investigations.
