Nabbed KRA officials due in court for tax evasion collusion

A section of the Kenya Revenue Authority officials arrested on on Thursday are due in court today after being interdicted for being part of a tax evasion racket.

Directorate of Criminal Investigations says detectives have recovered phones and other electronic gadgets from 41 of the suspects for forensic analysis.

With the 41 expected in court, another 48 KRA staffers have been ordered to immediately surrender to the nearest DCI offices for processing.

DCI boss George Kinoti says the 48 include 32 from the domestic taxes department, 15 from the customs and border control and another from the investigations and enforcement.

The employees are said to have been aiding and abetting tax evasion by facilitating irregular clearance of cargo and executing fraudulent amendments of tax returns.

Among those interdicted are 61 officers from the domestic taxes department, 14 of whom are attached to customs and border control.
