The network of public interest lawyers NEPTIL has constituted a committee of numerous lawyers to carry out a thorough research on how the record of Director of Public Prosecution DPP in regards to handling of the cases initiated private prosecutors for the past 20 years.

According to the chair of the advisory committee NEPTIL Daniel Walyemera, the main agenda of the research is to establish the percentage at which the DPP has handled such cases to their conclusion

Daniel says that in case they find the percentage below 70 or 80% they will file an application to the constitutional court seeking to reduce the powers of DPP in taking over private prosecutor’s cases as mandated in article 120 of the constitution.

Daniel noted that they have found it to be unfair for the citizens to be assaulted and tortured by public servants and in the end no justice is served to them.
