AS crime gets more sophisticated with hi-tech, the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Richard Butera has assured Parliament his department is measuring up to the task
Meeting the legal and parliamentary affairs committee chaired by Dora Byamukama (Mwenge), Butera yesterday identified the hi-tech crimes as computer crimes, money-laundering and drug related cases.
He said he had discussed new crime areas with the Law Reform Commission and draft Bills had been prepared for presentation to Parliament to cover the new crime areas. He said specialised training was being considered and South Africa had been cited as a possible ground.
Butera and his team asked for more funding for the department. They said they needed more staff.
