The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has strongly criticized the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) for its decision to close the investigation into corruption allegations against Charles Adu Boahen, a former Minister of State at the Finance Ministry.
According to the OSP, Mr Adu Boahen’s actions did not constitute actual criminal activity that would necessitate legal action by the Special Prosecutor.
However, the opposition NDC disagrees with this decision, asserting that Adu Boahen’s actions constitute corruption.
In a statement, the party stressed that the OSP’s report could erode public confidence, as it appears to be a cover-up.
They indicated that Adu Boahen’s conduct amounts to significant corruption and must not go unpunished.
The NDC has since vowed that a future NDC government will conduct criminal investigations and prosecute those found culpable.
“Having forensically verified the audio-visual recording adduced by Tiger Eye P. I. as a true reflection of the events represented thereon, and having conclusively established that Charles Adu Boahen indeed, demanded a bribe of 20% of the value of the initial investment or an upfront payment of 10% of the value of the proposed investment and a post-investment sharing of the proceeds of same from undercover agents of Tiger Eye P. I. who were posing as businessmen interested in investing in Ghana, it is totally unacceptable for the OSP to have concluded that Charles Adu is not guilty of a crime,” the party said in the statement.
