Attorney General Clarifies: OSP, not me , cleared Cecilia Dapaah of corruption charges


Attorney General and Minister of Justice Godfred Yeboah Dame clarified that former sanitation minister Cecilia Dapaah was exonerated of corruption-related charges by the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP), not his office.


In response to criticism of his advice to the Economic and Organized Crime Office (EOCO) regarding the money laundering probe into Cecilia Dapaah’s affairs, Attorney General Dame stated that the OSP cleared her of corruption.


He emphasized that the OSP, mandated to investigate corruption and related offenses, conducted extensive investigations into Cecilia Dapaah’s case, leading to her exoneration.


Dame questioned why his office was accused of clearing Cecilia Dapaah of corruption when neither EOCO nor the Attorney General’s office had investigated her for corruption.


He clarified that the OSP’s referral to Cecilia Dapaah was limited to funds allegedly transported from the United States to Ghana, excluding other monetary aspects.


Dame highlighted that the OSP’s investigations did not include funds recovered from Dapaah’s house, frozen bank accounts, or money allegedly stolen by her house staff.


Regarding his advice to EOCO, Attorney General Dame explained that the OSP’s referral focused solely on specific funds related to Dapaah’s case, which influenced his decision.


He further criticized reactions to his letter, including those from the Centre for Democratic Development, as misleading.
