DPP Haji targets five local banks and top bank officials linked to shady deals in the Sh8 billion NY

Director of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti and his counterpart at the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji are considering prosecuting 20 senior officials in five banks, which they believe aided the laundering of at least Sh1 billion looted from the National Youth Service (NYS) between January 2016 and April last year.
Detectives believe senior officials at Standard Chartered, Kenya Commercial, Equity, Diamond Trust and Cooperative banks quietly allowed some of the key suspects in the Sh8 billion looting of the NYS to move large sums of money undetected.
Now Mr Kinoti wants Mr Haji to press charges against the banks and the 20 officials.
The DPP on Thursday announced that he had instructed a group of special prosecutors to review the evidence the DCI gathered and recommend whether to charge all or just some of them.
