Three petitions seeking Haji’s removal as DPP filed at PSC
Three petitions have separately been filed before the Public Service Commission (PSC) to have the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji dismissed from office.
The first petition was filed by the sister of slain Dutch businessman Tob Cohen, Gabrielle Van Straten who accused the DPP of mismanaging her late brother’s murder case.
In the second petition, businessman Francis Nyaga Njeru accused Haji of failing to act constitutionally in a Sh150 million land case against businessman Ahmed Rashid Jibril and his wife Farah Ali Mohamed.
The third case is by former Jack and Jill proprietor Schon Ahmed Noorani who wants Haji sacked for ‘mishandling’ case where fellow businessman Rajendra Ratilal Sanghani allegedly failed to repay his debt totaling Sh167 million.
He says the DPP closed his file prematurely.
All of Haji’s accusers want the PSC to find him unsuitable to hold office.
They argue that the DPP is guilty of several offenses including abuse of office, incompetence, gross misconduct, favouritism, partiality, disregard of the rule of law, delay in the administration of justice, and non-compliance with Chapter Six of the Constitution, among others.
