Ghana’ll lose corruption fight if Sir John’s ruling stands – SP

Ghana’ll lose corruption fight if Sir John’s ruling stands – SP

Special Prosecutor Kissi Agyebeng has expressed shock and disappointment in the latest High Court ruling dismissing the application to freeze the assets of the late former Chief Executive Officer of the Forestry Commission, Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, (Sir John), arguing that the verdict if allow will thwart anti-graft efforts.

The Special Prosecuttor said Ghana will lose the fight against corruption if this decision is allowed to stand.

In spite of the court ruling, the OSP said the investigations into the estate of Sir John will still proceed.

The High Court in Accra on Tuesday July 12 dismissed an application filed by the OSP to freeze the assets of Sir John.

On 30th May 2022 the Special Prosecutor directed the freezing of the assets.

On 9th June 2022, the Special Prosecutor applied to the High Court for a confirmation of the freezing order. On 12th July 2022 the High Court presided over by Her Ladyship Justice Efia Serwah Browe inexplicably dismissed the application.

“If this decision is left to stand, the Republic will lose the fight against corruption in unimaginable ways. The investigations into the estate of Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie alias Sir John will still proceed,” the OSP said in a statement reacting to the ruling.
