According to Haji, the fraud case was first presented to him on May 17, 2019 but found some gaps forcing him to send it back to the Ethics and Anti-corruption Commission (EACC) for further scrutiny.
The file was again submitted on 13 December, 2019 but the findings still not satisfactory.
On June 9, the DPP said, the file was resubmitted and is satisfied with the report brought forward.
Therefore, he said, the 11 persons will face various charges under the Anti-corruption and Economic Crimes Act, 2003.
The crimes, the DPP averred, were perpetrated by bank signatories to the KSL accounts.
They also happened to be senior employees at the school of Law, Finance department.
