LIVESTREAMED: Special Prosecutor’s Full Update on Cecilia Dapaah’s Case

Accra, January 25, 2024 – The Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) held a press briefing today to update the public on the latest developments in its ongoing investigation into the alleged corruption involving the former Minister of Sanitation and Water Resources, Cecilia Dapaah.

At the event at the OSP’s headquarters in Accra, the Special Prosecutor, Mr. Kissi Agyebeng, discussed the significant legal actions tied to the investigation and the way forward. The OSP revealed that his office has discontinued all legal actions against the former Sanitation Minister after having found that the case predominantly falls on money laundering and not corruption. The case will now be handled by the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO).

The probe centers on allegations of corruption and corruption-related offenses against Cecilia Dapaah, triggered after two of her domestic aides were charged with stealing substantial amounts, including over $1 million and €300,000 in cash, along with other valuable items from her residence in Abelemkpe. Concurrently, the OSP has taken measures to freeze some of the former minister’s assets.

In response to the investigation, Cecilia Dapaah has taken legal action by filing an injunction at the Supreme Court. The injunction aims to restrain the OSP from taking further steps that may be perceived as infringing upon her rights.

During the press briefing, Special Prosecutor Kissi Agyebeng is anticipated to share updates on the latest findings from the investigation and shed light on the ongoing legal proceedings, providing Ghanaians with crucial insights into the unfolding situation.
