DPP Noordin Haji has revealed that his office was in the process of filing for a revision of the bail ruling
The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji, on Wednesday, January 29, expressed his displeasure on how the Embakasi East Member of Parliament Paul Ongili alias Babu Owino’s ruling was made, saying he would revisit.
The Directorate of Public Prosecution (DPP) Noordin Haji has indicated plans to review the bail ruling of Embakasi East Member of Parliament (MP) Paul Ongili alias Babu Owino.
In his statement, Haji also pointed out at the bail terms ordered by Milimani Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi.
- “I have never heard, first of all, of bail terms that you are asked to pay in installments, and then secondly, my understanding is that once you pay bail, it goes to the ex-checker. So how will we be able to access the money to go and pay for the injured party,” stated the DPP.
- “We are going for a revision, we have agreed as DPP, and we have also written to the JSC to complain, because that ruling… I mean, I cannot fathom it,” said DDP Haji.
In his ruling, Magistrate Andayi directed Babu Owino to deposit the Sh10 million cash bail in four equal installments of Sh2.5 million each in the next three months.
The Magistrate had ruled that some of the money would be used to settle medical bills of Felix Orinda aka DJ Evolve; the man Babu Owino is accused of shooting on the neck.
