The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji on Monday morning, July 5 launched a boat in Lamu County.
According to the ODPP, MV ADIL will come in handy in enhancing access to justice to the people of Lamu County.
While launching the speed boat, DPP Haji was accompanied by EU Ambassador Katrin Hagemann, United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime’s Charity Kagwi, Malindi and Tana River High Court Judge Reuben Nyakundi among others.
“The boat will facilitate mobility of the ODPP and criminal justice actors during mobile court sessions in the main Islands of Lamu,” says the ODPP.
Also, MV ADIL will help the justice sector agencies in sensitising Lamu residents on human rights issues affecting them.
DPP Haji on elections
Speaking during the just concluded Media Sector Working Group conference in Diani, Kwale County, DPP Haji had called for the amendment of election laws to deal with would-be offenders of the electoral process ahead of the 2022 General Election.
According to Haji, the current laws are unrefined and are not designed to deal with offences.
