Kenya and Switzerland get closer in the fight against international corruption and financial crime

On 28 April, Kenya's Attorney General’s Office and the Swiss Federal Office of Justice signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) on international mutual assistance in criminal matters in Nairobi. The MOU will facilitate the cooperation between the two countries in investigating and prosecuting international corruption and other financial crimes. It is a testimony to the excellent cooperation between Kenya and Switzerland in a number of high profile cases in recent years. The International Centre of Asset Recovery at the Basel Institute welcomes this newly signed MOU, and expects it will help both countries to continue on this path and indeed accelerate cooperation further.
