ICPAK REACHES OUT TO ODPP FOR COLLABORATION IN FIGHTING CORRUPTION
The office of the Director of Public Prosecution has expressed its readiness to work closely with the Institute in enhancing accountability in Kenya through investigations and prosecution of economic crimes.
Speaking during a courtesy call meeting with ICPAK at his office, Director of Public Prosecution Mr. Noordin M.Haji welcomed the call for partnership by the institute
“We welcome the thought to bring in Forensic auditors to support the prosecution of corruption cases and other related economic crimes.” Said Mr. Haji
The meeting underscored the significance of a robust whistle blower protection framework. In this regard, it was agreed that the draft framework being narrow in scope, it calls for broadening of scope to incorporate the mandates of other agencies and at the same time expand on the list of the possible crimes.
ICPAK Vice Chairman CPA Denish Osodo observed the need for a joint capacity building initiative.
On his part ICPAK Chief Executive officer CPA Edwin Makori noted that the Institute fully supports the idea of a memorandum of understanding to entrench closer working relationships with the ODPP for greater accountability in the economy.
