I disagree with court order to return Cecilia’s seized funds – Kissi Agyebeng

Source The Ghana Report

Special Prosecutor, Kissi Agyebeng, has expressed disappointment in a recent court order asking him to return the former Sanitation Minister Cecilia Abena Dapaah’s seized funds.

It will be recalled that the Accra High Court, on Thursday, August 31, ordered the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) to return all seized assets within seven days.

The court, presided over by Justice Edward Twum, said it identified no justifiable reasons for the OSP to freeze Cecilia Dapaah’s accounts.

According to the judge, the OSP erred in exercising its powers to search the former minister’s residence.

Also, the court ruled that the OSP had violated conditions that must be met before issuing orders to seize properties believed to be “suspected tainted property” linked to corruption.

Reacting to the court’s decision in a statement, the Special Prosecutor said his office respects the order but disagrees with it because it is erroneous.

“While the OSP respects the court’s decision, it disagrees with the decision of the court. First, the OSP believes that the court’s computation of the time limitation is, with respect, erroneous,” Agyebeng said.

Below is the statement to that effect.
