Stephen Kramer QC, head of specialist crime set 1 Hare Court, has been appointed as legal adviser to the Risk Advisory Group in its campaign for the Kenyan government against corruption
Kramer was chairman of the Criminal Bar Association in 2000-2001, where he led a forceful campaign against major changes to the jury system. He has a longstanding general criminal practice, mainly for the prosecution, and has international experience which includes sanction-busting cases. The project will be led by the chief executive of the Risk Advisory Group Bill Waite, a barrister and former Serious Fraud Office prosecutor. Lead consultant is the former London police commander Graham Stockwell, who led efforts to root out corruption by the governments of Hong Kong and Botswana. Kenyan president Daniel arap Moi invited the group to intervene in a situation that is seeing millions of pounds earmarked for Kenya from the International Monetary Fund (IMO) being withdrawn due to concerns about corruption thwarting attempts to revive the East African country's economy. Last month, IMO officials announced after talks with Kenyan officials that they were hopeful of putting the lending programme on track. Kramer was unavailable for comment.
