This comes weeks after the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) referred a suspected case of money laundering involving the former Water and Sanitation Minister, Cecilia Dapaah to EOCO for further investigation and prosecution.
“Nobody will direct you when you have evidence
It is when you don’t have evidence, when you haven’t been able to put evidence together then someone can tell you not to do this.
“But if you have done your work in such a way that you have evidence, very solid evidence, you just have to explain to the person that these are my evidence, these are A, B and C and they are solid and I am presenting it to the court.
Former Sanitation Minister, Cecilia Dapaah and Special Prosecutor, Kissi Agyebeng
On Thursday, January 25, the Special Prosecutor, Kissi Agyebeng dropped the application to confirm the seizure and the freezing of the monies and bank accounts of Madam Cecilia Dapaah.
Although it is not clear what informed the decision, sources indicated that the OSP had also been given 72 hours by the court, within which to unfreeze the accounts and return the seized funds to Madam Dapaah and her husband, Daniel Osei Kuffuor.
The OSP arrested Madam Dapaah on July 24, 2023, on suspicion of corruption and corruption-related offences after she and her husband, Daniel Osei Kuffuor reported huge sums of money stolen from their home by their two housemaids.
