Professor Kwabena Frimpong-Boateng, who served as the former Minister of Environment, Science, Technology, and Innovation, has confirmed that he received an invitation letter from the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP), which asked him to assist in the investigation into the activities of the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining (IMCIM). The IMCIM has since been dissolved.
On May 4, he made a brief statement in which he said, “Earlier today, I received a letter from the Office of the Special Prosecutor inviting me to assist the Office as a person necessary for the investigation into suspected corruption and corruption-related offenses in respect of the activities and expenditures of the dissolved International Ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining.”
This was said in reference to the activities and expenditures of the International Ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining, which was dissolved earlier this year.
“I have communicated formally my willingness to attend the invitation and support the OSP in their work.”
