Monday, March 13, 2023 –The Director of Public Prosecutions DPP has freed former Interior Cabinet Secretary CS Fred Matiang’i.
On Monday, March 13, the DPP confirmed dropping all charges against the former Interior Cabinet Secretary and his lawyer, Danstan Omari.
“The evidence provided did not meet the ingredients needed to prove each of the fore- mentioned offences as required by law.
“The Director of Public Prosecutions has therefore directed the Directorate of Criminal Investigations to close the inquiry file with no further police action,” partly read the acquittal statement over the charges – conspiracy to commit a felony and publication of false information.
Turning against the DCI, ODPP stated that after independently reviewing statements from the witnesses and analysing the available evidence, it was nolonger viable to continue with the charges in court.
“The Director of Public Prosecutions found that the evidence provided was not sufficient to sustain the above charges,” further clarified the statement.
Charges against the former CS were a result of a report of an alleged invasion by police officers at his Karen home on February 8; something that saw opposition leader, friends and colleagues go into solidarity with him.
