Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu was arrested on Tuesday August 28 in alleged suspicion of corruption and tax evasion.
Media reports claim the Deputy CJ is in the custody of the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) for questioning.
The Supreme Court judge is reportedly under the DCI spotlight for allegedly moving large sums of money in and out of bank accounts as well as failure to pay taxes.
According to the Nation, most of the transactions revolve around the collapsed Imperial Bank.
The paper goes on to report that DCJ Mwilu’s arrest comes after months of investigations following the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) flagging the Supreme Court judge to the Director of Public Prosecutions.
Just yesterday, the same newspaper had reported that a Supreme Court judge could face imminent arrest.
