DPP's Office loses its independence

The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, which is traditionally regarded as the second most powerful and independent organ behind the judiciary, has lost all its neutrality following the appointment of John Rabuku as acting DPP.

Rabuku was appointed last week and is a relatively juniour lawyer when compared to other DPP lawyers like Andie Driu, whom he sacked on Monday.

Sources say Rabuku sacked Driu because she didn't want to be a puppet for the regime and said she would be neutral and follow the law.

What can you expect of an illegal regime born out of a rejection of the rule of law? It attracts bushlawyers and bumsuckers!
