Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji has gazetted the appointment of Queen's Counsel Khawar Qureshi as the special prosecutor in Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu's case.

Mr Haji announced the appointment of Mr Qureshi on Tuesday, saying he picked the London-based professor through single-sourcing after failing to find a suitable candidate through advertisement. He noted that several cases are of great public importance and that it is important to prevent conflict between his office and the Judiciary.
