Why Pathologist accused of stealing body parts wants case stopped

Former Chief Government Pathologist Moses Njue, who is facing prosecution for stealing body parts, has now moved to the High Court seeking to stop the criminal trial at the magistrate court.

Together with his son Lemuel Anasha Mureithi Njue, Njue is accusing the office of the Directorate of Public Prosecution of not exercising its mandate appropriately in recommending them to be charged.

The two claim that there are individuals who recorded statements with the police simply because they are being shielded from prosecution while at the same time embarrass as well as humiliate the two.

They have sued the DPP, the Inspector General of police, the Director of Criminal Investigations and the Magistrate court at Milimani.

“The proceedings form selective prosecution and investigation on the part of the sued parties,” said their lawyer Anne Mugo Kamau.

Dr Njue who is currently the CEO of Embu Level Five Hospital, has since denied charges of stealing body parts, destroying evidence and illegal removal of parts of a body.

He is accused of  committing the offense alongside his son between June 25 and September 21,2015 at the Lee Funeral Home.
