DAILY POST: SHOCK as ORENGO chickens out over his legal duel with Prof QURESHI – He has realised DCJ PHILOMENA MWILU is headed to jail!



Thursday December 4, 2018 – Senior Counsel, James
Orengo, now wants Queens Counsel, Prof Khatar Qureshi, barred from representing
the State in a case where Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu is charged with
corruption related offenses.

On Monday, Director of Public Prosecutions, Noordin Haji, claimed that he
sought the services of Prof Qureshi so that he can assist the prosecution of
Mwilu who is the second in command in the Judiciary.
“He (Khawar Qureshi) is not coming here to handle all corruption cases. He
is coming specifically for the Deputy Chief Justice case because it is an
important matter of public interest,” Haji told journalists on Wednesday.
Appearing in court on Thursday during the pre-trial conference of the
case, Orengo, who is representing Mwilu, urged the court to bar Prof Qureshi
from representing the State.
Orengo said Qureshi is not a Kenyan and is not a member of the Law Society
of Kenya.
Orengo’s plea will be determined tomorrow by a five Judge bench.
Qureshi has practised commercial law, international arbitration, public
international law and administrative and constitutional law.
