“My Government Will Reopen Investigations into Alleged Acts of Corruption in the Cecilia Dapaah Case” – John Dramani Mahama

Former Ghanaian President John Dramani Mahama has reaffirmed his commitment to reopening investigations into alleged corruption and graft in the Cecilia Dapaah case if he wins the upcoming election.

In a recent tweet from his official Twitter account, Mr. Mahama stated, “My government will reopen investigations into alleged acts of corruption and graft in the Cecelia Dapaah case.”

This announcement follows recent developments where the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) referred the case to the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) for investigations into suspected money laundering.

However, the Attorney-General’s office has advised against initiating such investigations, citing a lack of evidence for the OSP’s request.

In a letter to the Executive Director of EOCO, Chief State Attorney Evelyn D. Keelson stated that the OSP’s investigations did not find any evidence of corruption, corruption-related offenses, or procurement breaches against the suspects in the Cecilia Dapaah case.

The letter also mentioned that the OSP returned money and other properties retrieved from the suspects, leading to their discharge.

The Attorney-General’s office further noted that the OSP’s letter to EOCO did not provide a basis for suspicion regarding money laundering and structuring, making it challenging to ascertain the grounds for such allegations.

The letter also mentioned that the OSP did not provide a copy of its report on collaborative investigations conducted with the FBI.
