Special Prosecutor Issues Warning to Corrupt officials, check it out

The Special Prosecutor (SP) has issued a warning that anyone facing allegations of corruption or crimes related to corruption will face legal action from his office.

Mr. Kissi Agyabeng asserts that he will properly investigate any charges of corruption against any member of the public rather than ignore them.

The Special Prosecutor said in an interview that aired on JoyNews’ Newsfile on Saturday that “if there are accusations against you that you have seized excavators and you  are unable to account for it, I won’t sleep over it; I will come after you.”

The Special Prosecutor also declared that he would pursue any public official who was accused of either being unable to account for seized gold nuggets in his care or of having pocketed them.

Special Prosecutor Issues Warning to Corrupt officials

“If there are claims that you misused the committee’s resources, I won’t worry about it. I’m going to get you,” he warned.

His remarks follow worries regarding the detention and later release on bail of Prof. Kwabena Frimpong-Boateng, the former chairman of the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining.

The OSP invited Prof. Frimpong-Boateng on May 16 as “a person necessary for the investigations” into alleged corruption and offenses related to corruption in relation to the operations and expenses of the disbanded IMCIM.

He gladly accepted the offer, but the subsequent circumstances made Prof. Frimpong-Boateng a suspect. He claims that after receiving a warning and being released on bond, officials from the Ontario Provincial Police had to follow the friend to find out where he was living.

Thanks to a court order that the Special Prosecutor was able to obtain, the former Secretary of the Committee is currently under arrest.

According to Mr. Agyebeng, there have been claims against these officers who participated in that Inter-Ministerial Committee. The Committee’s Head, Secretary, and other officers interacted with people who were allegedly engaged in the trade or adventure of illicit mining, as did the Committee’s dealings as a whole. This is where we are coming from, then.

He asserted that everyone is treated equally during the investigation and that nobody is a saint in the eyes of the OSP.

However, he added, if the inquiry shows that a person suspected of corruption has nothing against them, they are free to leave.
