Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji has claimed that part of the money lost in the Ruaraka Land scandal has been traced to Mauritius.

Speaking on Wednesday before the Senate's Justice and Legal Affairs Committee Haji said that the money was withdrawn and taken to Mauritius.

"In the Ruaraka issue, some of the withdrawn money has been taken to Mauritius. Once cash has been withdrawn, it becomes very difficult to track it," Haji said.

He added that Sh250 million of the Ruaraka Land was once withdrawn within three day

He also stated that they have since written a letter to the Mauritius government to facilitate, through legal assistance, to have that money returned to the Central Bank of Kenya.

Hajji added that they urged the Mauritius government to repatriate any suspects who may escape to their country so that they can be prosecuted in Kenya.

He, however, questioned how the banks involved in the transactions of the millions allowed such amounts of money to go through their systems without raising a flag with the CBK.

Additionally, he stated that they (Directorate of Criminal Investigations) are working with the CBK to investigate the matter and how the money was withdrawn.

"There must be a conspiracy between these banks and those involved in the corruption as well as public officials," Haji expressed.
