TO BE CONTINUED…

Further, the office of the State Prosecutor hereby mandates the ASSETS RECOVERY TEAM(ART) as part of the new dispensation, to pursue the course of restitution as a way of recovering unconditionally all of the monies unaccounted for, and possible criminal prosecution will be pursued only  in the event where a negotiated settlement is not had; the drawing up of an indictment and the petitioning of Court to Freeze of Seize asserts would become inevitably imperative as the last resort.

Finally, the State Prosecutor’s office reserves all rights under the law to order or cause to order the immediate and unconditional arrest and detention of any would-be “person of interest” without any further notice, if and only if it becomes clear that the would-be  “Person(s) of Interest” has/have engaged or is/are attempting to engage in any conduct incompatible with the behavior of a law-abiding and  responsible citizen or is, as the office may consider, trying to undermine or impede the  work of the Assets Recovery Team (ART).
