As reported by The Star few days ago,a court file containing documents opposing the prosecution of the managing director of an Italian company involved in the Arror and Kimwarer dams saga had gone missing.
The case was scheduled for a hearing before Judge Anthony Mrima on Monday, but it was postponed because the file could not be located. The matter had to be set aside so that the file could be located.
However, it had not been found by the time the court resumed at noon. When the file is found, the Deputy Registrar will issue directions to the parties in the case, according to Justice Mrima. Paolo Porcelli has asked the High Court to vacate an arrest warrant issued by the Anti-Corruption Court in this case.
And now Director of Public Prosecution Nordin Haji,has issued a statement over claims the documents disappeared under his watch.
He said that the missing file is a court file and not a prosecution file as many people and the media were alleging.
H added that such reports of files disappearing have been the norm hence obstructing the attempts to make a ruling.
