OSP completes probe on Charles Bissue, Adu Boahen

The Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) has wrapped up its investigations into three other prominent suspected corruption cases as well as charges of corruption involving Charles Bissue, a former Minister of State at the Ministry of Finance.

These cases were among the nine that the OSP had been actively examining, according to its half-yearly report, which was published on June 30, 2023. Additionally, there are more than 150 corruption cases being considered at various stages right now.

An alleged attempt by a wealthy businessman to bribe Members of Parliament (MPs) on the Majority side was one of the cases that the OSP looked into. These lawmakers demanded that Ken Ofori-Atta, the minister of finance, resign.

The Special Prosecutor (SP), Kissi Agyebeng, is anticipated to make the next move public as soon as the OSP’s investigations into this case are finished.

According to the newspaper, “The Special Prosecutor will issue directives and take further action on the matter in due course.”

Recall that Charles Adu Boahen’s appointment as a Minister of State was cancelled by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on November 14, 2022, as a result of an exposé by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

According to the exposé, Adu Boahen was seen taking cash from a purported Arab businessman. The OSP’s findings are anxiously anticipated as the investigations into the death of Adu Boahen come to a close.

According to Section 3(3) of the Office of the Special Prosecutor Act, 2017 (Act 959), the release of the half-yearly report is required. According to this clause, the OSP must disclose the list of corruption cases it is looking into and prosecuting, as well as the number of exonerations, convictions, and assets seized.
