Fight against transnational organized crimes dominated talks between DCI Director Mohamed Amin and top FBI Counter-terrorism officials Friday Morning.

This is after FBI’s Assistant Director of the Counter-terrorism Division Robert R. Wells, based at FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C accompanied by Leonard Williams, paid a courtesy call to the DCI boss at his Mazingira complex offices along Kiambu Road.

The conversation between the three focused on enhancing the relationship between the two agencies in the fight against transnational organized crimes and more specifically terrorism and violent extremism.

While exploring ways in which we can further strengthen our collaboration, the high ranking FBI officials also acknowledged the country’s efforts in the fight against organized crimes not only in Kenya but across the African region.

On his part, the DCI Chief thanked the FBI for the long standing relationship enjoyed by the two agencies that had benefited both agencies in the execution of their mandates.

In particular, Mr Amin noted that FBI had previously sponsored and facilitated capacity development programmes aimed at improving the investigative and professional capacity of our officers in dealing with transnational organized crimes.

The two FBI Directors were later led on a tour of the DCI National Forensic Laboratory by the DCI deputy director Ireri Kamwende.
