DEC drops money laundering charges against former Western province Permanent secretary

The Drug Enforcement Commission has dropped all money laundering charges against former Western Province Permanent Secretary Ikanuke Noyoo.

DEC spokesperson John Nyawali claimed that the decision follows discovery that the Ministry of Finance has already recovered the money from Noyoo’s gratuity. 

Noyoo was arrested by the Commission on 14th April 2011 for theft and money laundering involving over K46 million.

Without stating whether  Noyoo will be compensated, Nyawali said DEC ‘would like to urge other civil servants who have not retired their imprest to do so in good time through their respective departments to avoid future inconveniences.
