The DCI then responded saying any items that are recovered or confiscated are kept as exhibits to be used before a court of Law. After conclusion of the case, the court gives directions on what to do with the exhibits.

One time Mombasa, Kenya: Monday, February 18: A businessman facing money laundering charges in Mombasa accused Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Noordin Haji of threatening him with a gun and stealing Sh2 million from him during a raid at Reef Hotel two years ago.
Stephen Vicker Mangira testified in a Mombasa court that Haji who was then an intelligence officer with the National Intelligence Service and several policemen raided the hotel on claims they were searching for drugs.
Mangira’s lawyer Kinyua Kamunde told the court that Haji, not only broke the law but was also guilty of gross professional misconduct and should not prosecute his client’s case due to conflict of interest.“I accuse Mr Noordin Haji and Hamisi Salim Masha of jointly stealing Sh2,100,000,” testified Mangira who also added that the future DPP “pointed a gun at my head and conducted a search on my person.”
However the DPP dismissed the allegations;”That is a lie…he should be asked what he was doing with Ksh 18.5 million, we recovered (it) from him in cash.
“He is saying that people stole Ksh 2 million from him including me, what was recovered was Ksh 18.5 million and it is there,” explained the DPP to reporters.
