Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu has this afternoon survived a prosecution after a high court suppressed corruption charges against her.
A five judge bench ruled that DPP Noordin Haji lacked the legal basis to indict judge Mwilu as the evidence was illegally obtained.
The court added that Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) violated her rights to privacy when they gained access to her IBL accounts without due process.
The prosecution has expressed interest to appeal the decision.
The Director of Public Prosecution Noordin Haji had asked court to determine whether criminal proceedings can be initiated against a sitting judge.
