The National Committee on Criminal Justice Reforms (NCCJR) holds discussions with KDF

The National Committee on Criminal Justice Reforms (NCCJR) today held deliberations with the Kenya Defence Forces on sector reforms in the criminal justice system. The Committee chaired by High Court Judge Grace Ngenye met with a KDF team led by Army Commander Lt General Robert Kibochi who briefed it on areas in the Court Martial system that require reforms. Justice Ngenye emphasized the need for comprehensive reforms in the way cases are handled in disputes and disciplinary related matters involving members of the disciplined forces to ensure that they access justice just like members of the public. The NCCJR has in the past two days held similar meetings with the Kenya National Commission on Human Rights-KNHCR and the management of the Mathari Mental Hospital with a view to establishing collaboration in areas of reform in the criminal justice system. Tomorrow, the Committee will hold deliberations with the Kenya Prisons Service and the Independent Police Oversight Authority (IPOA)
