We’re probing Prof. Frimpong-Boateng’s galamsey report -Special Prosecutor
A statement issued by the special prosecutor said his office insists that issues highlighted in a recently leaked report conducted by the former Environment Minister Prof Kwabena Frimpong-Manso are already under its radar. This follows calls from the General Public for the office to take a keen interest in the report which exposes many infractions in the fight against the canker. The report also names top government officials supposedly involved in the activity. This included an allegation that a garden in President Akufo-Addo’s Kyebi home was also affected by illegal mining which took the Minister’s intervention to halt. In a May 2 communique, Mr Agyebeng welcomed the calls for an investigation and also assured that his “investigation is ongoing and far-reaching and it also covers the matters raised in the report published by the head of the dissolved IMCIM. The special prosecutor also added that action will be taken against persons found culpable in the activity.
