“I pledge not to interfere with your work” – Attorney General to the Special Prosecutor
Kissi Agyebeng, the Special Prosecutor, on Tuesday paid a working visit to the Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Godfred Yeboah-Dame.
The Office of the Special Prosecutor’s Act (Act 959) mandates the Special Prosecutor under Section 3 (f) to cooperate and coordinate with the Attorney General and other competent authorities in Ghana and abroad in the performance of his work.
Due to allegations of interference from government by the previous Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu, the Attorney General pledged not to interfere with his work.
“I pledge to you my intention not to interfere with your work and I will not do that at all. I recognize your independence and I will make sure all the help you require is given to you, from recruitment of competent personnel to budgetary allocation”, he said.
