Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji has filed an application at the Milimani Chief Magistrates Court seeking the deportation one Abdulrahman Imran Juma alias Rahaman to the United States of America.

The DPP filed the petition on November 30, 2021 after receiving a request from the United States government.

According to the DPP, Juma was in April 2021 charged by a California court for conspiracy to commit wire fraud, money laundering and aggravated identity theft.

Juma and other persons, who have already been arraigned before the California court, are said to be part of an illegal outfit that schemed to defraud a US-based man who was seeking a lender to finance a school building project.

The DPP, through SADPP, Catherine Mwaniki, has since made an application seeking that the fugitive remain in custody pending the hearing of the extradition application,

The court will give its ruling on the extradition case on January 26, 2021.
