Pressure group, OccupyGhana has petitioned the Special Prosecutor to investigate the yet-to-be named wealthy businessman, who allegedly attempted to bribe MPs calling for the head of the Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta, and the Minister of State at the Finance Ministry, Charles Adu Boahen.
In a letter addressed to the Special Prosecutor, OccupyGhana called for the prosecution of anyone found culpable after the investigations.
“We have followed media reports from interviews by Joy FM with Osei Kyei-Mensah Bonsu (MP, Suame, Majority Leader and Minister of Parliamentary Affairs) and Andy Appiah-Kubi (MP, Asante Akim North), which have been widely circulated by other media portals,” the OccupyGhana statement said.
“In these interviews, the MPs alleged that an unnamed, wealthy businessman had attempted to bribe them. That would be an attempt to influence the conduct of MPs in the course of their official duties, a potential corruption offence that falls within the remit of your office,” the letter added.
