CJ Maraga Cautions Suspects Covering Their Faces in Courts
CJ Maraga cautions suspects in court against hiding their identities.
Chief Justice David Maraga has advised courts against allowing suspects to wear hoodies and sunglasses to cover their faces. In a Memo seen by NFD DISPATCH sent today addressed to Judges, Magistrates and Khadis, Maraga noted that it has become a trend for suspect to make themselves unidentifiable in court.
” “While exercising you individual and independent control of your courts, you must ensure that you are not seen to perpetuating impunity by allowing egregious behaviour by the suspects, particularly when such behaviour can bring disrepute to the court,” the memo read in part.
This comes a day after suspects in KRA scandal Camouflaged their appearance.
