Topic of the research: Regulating Exercise of Prosecutorial Discretion. A Case Study of Prosecution of Corruption Offences in Kenya
The study reviewed the legal framework for controlling the exercise of prosecutorial power in prosecuting corruption offences in Kenya. It analysed the regulations governing prosecution of corruption offences and further analysed whether the exercise of the power complies with the current legal framework. It identified the weaknesses in the current legal framework, areas for improvement, the good practices in other countries, the strengths and challenges in reforming it. The core output of the study was the model legal framework which is arguably capable of regulating exercise of prosecutorial power so that it is effective in prosecuting corruption offenders and recovering the assets.
