DAILY POST: Here is Queens Counsel QURESHI strategy to end corruption in Kenya that is causing people like RUTO sleepless nights-DPP already likes it



Saturday December 8, 2018-The Queens Counsel (QC), Khawar
Qureshi, has disclosed his strategy to stem corruption out Kenya once and for
all.

Speaking yesterday while attending a Plea Bargaining workshop
in Naivasha, Qureshi, who has been contracted by the Director of Public
Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji to help him with the war on graft, gave a
compelling argument based on the UK experience on the effectiveness of lawful
seizure of unexplained assets to discourage grand corruption.
According to Qureshi, the Criminal Finances Act which
introduces new measures to tackle asset recovery and money laundering in the UK,
is however, not observed in Kenya, a situation DPP Haji confirmed
to address in the 
fight against corruption.
A key element of the Act is Unexplained Wealth Orders (UWOs)
– an investigative tool to help law enforcement take action on corrupt
assets.
A red flag that allows a judge to issue the UWO is if the
respondent’s known income is insufficient to obtain the asset.
The UWO requires the respondent to explain how he lawfully
acquired his assets
if not the information is used in a separate civil
recovery of the assets.
Qureshi’s strategy is already causing some sleepless nights
among the corrupt and has impressed the DPP who promised to implement it here
in Kenya in the ongoing war against corruption.
