Picked this up from Daily News website: The Director of Public Prosecution (DPP), Mr Eliezer Feleshi, said yesterday that his office has started to scrutinise reports of graft, tax evasion and economic sabotage linked to prominent businessmen Mr Reginald Mengi and Mr Rostam Aziz. The two businessmen are currently engaged in an unprecedented war of words and name calling in the local media. The IPP Chairman, Mr Mengi, had earlier referred to the Igunga legislator, Mr Rostam as one of the top five most corrupt persons in the country, whom he named as "sharks." A few days later, Mr Rostam came out with scathing attacks against Mr Mengi, branding him as a paranoid, tax evader and an economic saboteur. On Tuesday, Mr Rostam went to the Prevention and Combating of Corruption Bureau (PCCB) offices in Dar es Salaam and presented a report detailing what he described as "documentary evidence implicating Mr Mengi in various criminal transactions." The following day, Mr Mengi filed a libel suit against the Igunga legislator at the High Court in Dar es Salaam demanding a whooping 10bn/- in damages. The DPP told the 'Daily News' that his office was looking for the authenticity of the claims as reported in the media. "Our investigative machinery is working on the allegations and we are going to act accordingly," Mr Feleshi said. Meanwhile, the DPP said his office and that of the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) have started conducting capacity building courses to the staff. Mr Feleshi said his office planned to recruit 157 lawyers in a couple of years, but has so far hired 47.
