DCI is probing a case involving failure to remit income tax, withholding tax and PAYE contrary to Section 97 of the Tax Procedure Act.

In the summon letter, Ms Nkiiri notes that the three are either involved in the said offence or have vital information on the same matter.

“In the exercise of the powers conferred to me under the provision of Section 52 (1) of the National Police Act of 2011, I do hereby summon you to appear before me,” the letter reads in part.

Should they fail to honour the summons, the trio risks prosecution.

“Please note that failure to honour this summon will render you liable to prosecution under section 52(2) of the National Police Act of 2011,” continues the letter.
