DPP partners with Judiciary to decongest prisons

A backlog of 3,100 files in Nairobi Remand Prison are set to be reviewed in a renewed effort to deal with cases in the facility.

A similar initiative is set to be launched across all remand facilities in the country, as the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions in partnership with the Judiciary join hands to address the prevailing loopholes, leading to the congestion.

The Secretary, Public Prosecutions, Dorcas Oduor says the ODPP shall review all pending files within 100 days saying the effort is multidimensional and requires a multi-agency combination.
