Third Person Files Petition to Kick DPP Haji Out Of Office
Pressure to hound Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji out of office continues with a third petition now presented at the desk of Public Service Commission.
The petition filed by owner of former popular Jack and Jill Supermarket Mr. Schon Ahmed Noorani the businessman accuses Haji of protecting a fellow business associate Mr. Rajendra Ratilal Sanghani in a Ksh. 240,669,000 Million loan.
“That Sanghani Willfully failed and or refused to honour the request and prematurely informed his bank not to honour the cheques as and when. Additionally, Mr. Sanghani filed miscellaneous application before court in which he acknowledged the debt owed to the petitioner and falsely proposed a repayment plan which he has since failed to honour to date,” the petition reads in part.
Through his Lawyer Shadrack Wambui Mr. Noordin failed to institute criminal charges against Sanghani.
“This is a serious matter and our client has a genuine complaint. People want to know what’s going on so you cannot gag the public from knowing the truth. Sanghani could have been charged with obtaining money by false presence but what did Haji do he insisted to pursue the matter in civil court yet our laws are very clear that you can institute a criminal case even with an ongoing civil case,” Wambui said.
Public Service Commission now has 14 days to consider the petition.
Speaking during the launch of the second strategic plan (2021-2026) for the National Council on the Administration of Justice (NCAJ), the embattled DPP said that he will not quit despites such calls.
“Even when we are exposed to differences of opinion amongst ourselves, we must encourage dialogue, respect collegiality and the enhancement of goodwill amongst ourselves,” remarked Haji.
