DCEO DEMANDS ESTABLISHMENT OF ANTI-CORRUPTION COURT

The Directorate on Corruption and Economic Offences (DCEO) has raised concerns over the delay in prosecuting corruption cases due to the absence of a dedicated Anti-corruption court.

Speaking on behalf of DCEO, Public Relations Officer Mrs. Matlhokomelo Senoko emphasized the urgent need for the government to establish an Anti-corruption court exclusively dedicated to handling DCEO cases. 

Mrs. Senoko highlighted that despite their efforts in bringing corruption cases before the courts, the current system, which includes mixing these cases with others like murder and theft, is causing significant delays in the prosecution process. Presently, 20 corruption cases are pending in the regular courts. . .
