Lawyer Peter Wanyama for Council of Governors and Kiambu County leaving Milimani Law Court.

BY SAM ALFAN.

The new anti-corruption court directives were never subjected to public participation and should not be operationalized, Lawyer tells court.

Lawyer Peter Wanyama also says that the new laws should not be implemented.

The directives for the new court were launched by Chief Justice David Maraga and were meant to fast-track corruption cases.

The Ethics and Anti-corruption Commission, Assets and Recovery Agency have also been enjoined in the case.

Also enjoined in the case is the Director of Public Prosecution and activist Charles Omanga.

Wanyama argues that the Law society of Kenya, among other stakeholders, did not receive copies of Judge Maraga’s rules for review.

In the directions, all applications challenging prosecution in corruption cases and related appeals will be handled by the Anti-Corruption and Economic Crimes Division of the High Court in Nairobi.

Corruption cases will also be heard within 90days.

Proceedings resume February 3rd.
