DAILY POST: Is DPP, NOORDIN HAJI, going soft on the corrupt or has he been compromised? See what he has done that may see looters walk free



Monday December 10, 2018 – It seems like the Director
of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Noordin Haji, has changed tact in dealing with
corruption and is slowly going soft on the corrupt.
This is after he came up
with a strategy where suspects will be given an opportunity to confess to their
crimes in exchange for a reduced number of charges or jail time.
If
a suspect enters into a plea deal with the prosecution, they will be considered
guilty and their conviction will still appear in their criminal record.
In
the strategy, suspects will also be required to surrender information regarding
their accomplices and help in tracking down property acquired using proceeds of
crime.
However,
Haji expressed some concerns with his plan, noting that some individuals
would use the strategy to circumvent the law.
“The
only fears we have is that if this programme is not used well, it would lead to
abuse of court process, hence the need to put in necessary policies to
safeguard it,” noted the DPP.
Nonetheless,
Haji’s deal will help prosecute corruption cases quicker as they will be concluded
easily as opposed to when they go to full trial.
