The Directorate of Criminal Investigations has been called to solve a firearm mystery in Seychelles. Since the successful operationalization of the DCI National Forensic Laboratory, the facility has proved to be an effective tool in solving complex crimes in Kenya and in other countries.
For instance, the DCI team based at the Forensic Ballistic lab and the bomb disposal and hazardous materials unit has been invited by the government of Seychelles for an assignment.
The move comes after the security agencies in that country nabbed a suspect with different types of firearms and an assortment of over 35,000 different types of ammunition. The DCI were invited to examine the firearms forensically in a bid to unravel their country of origin, manufacturer, make, type and other many things to establish if they had been used in another place to commit crime.
The DCI left the country and they were received by Seychelles' Director of Criminal Investigations Jeffrey Antoine. Currently, the sleuths are test-firing the firearms before returning back to Kenya to conduct a comprehensive analysis at the ballistic lab and prepare a detailed report to be handled to the authorities in Seychelles.
