Charles Bissue’s Case Against OSP Adjourned To March 13

Source The Ghana Report

An Accra High Court has adjourned the case of a former Presidential Staffer Charles Bissue against the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) to March 13.

Mr Bissue, who doubles as a one-time Secretary of the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining, had filed a case against the OSP over alleged corruption.

With the suit filed, Mr Bissue wants the court to stop the Office of the Special Prosecutor from further investigating and prosecuting him over alleged corruption involving illegal mining as captured in a galamsey expose by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

It will be recalled that in December 2022, the plaintiff (Mr Bissue) sought refuge at the court because he had already been probed and cleared by the police.

He was convinced there was no need for the Special Prosecutor to open a new investigation, as he was not cited for wrongdoing.

Updating the public on the latest development in a social media post after Monday’s proceedings, the OSP said lawyers for Mr Bissue prayed to withdraw the application filed on December 23, last year.

The team also announced that they had amended the affidavit in support of the application filed on January 4 this year.

But according to the Special Prosecutor, his office has yet to be served with the amended affidavits. Thus, the court has adjourned the hearing to March 13, 2023, for defendants to be served and respond if they so desire.
