DPP places mechanisms to enhance prosecution of terrorism

The Directorate of Public Prosecutions (DPP) says it has put in place mechanisms to enhance its capacity to undertake prosecution of terrorism related criminal matters as efforts to slay the ghost of violent extremism intensifies.

Speaking at the close of the International Conference on Terrorism and Violent Extremism, Assistant Director in the office of the DPP Edwin Okello said the measures have seen sources of funds for terrorists.

Okello was upbeat over the ongoing war on terror saying that one of the key strategies has been safeguarding the human rights of terror suspects even as efforts to combat youth radicalization intensify.

He says cutting off monetary channels among terror groups has proved the magical key in stifling terror groups.

The 3 days conference came to a close on Thursday with scholars and professionals in the security sector asking governments to enhance their intelligence gathering mechanisms in fighting radicalization and violent extremism.

The conference organized by the Horn International Institute coming as Kenya grapples with insecurity orchestrated by the Somali ragtag militia Al Shabaab.
