OSP report on Adu Boahen is a cover-up; we shall reinvestigate – NDC

3 Min Read

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has deemed the report by the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) on the former Minister of State at the Finance Minister Charles Adu Boahen as a cover-up.

According to Sammy Gyamfi, who is the National Communications Officer of the party,  Adu Boahen’s actions amount to extortion and that it is therefore unacceptable for the OSP to conclude that he is not guilty of any crime.

The party was also concerned that the said report can dampen public confidence in the Office of Special Prosecutor if not reviewed immediately.

“The report smacks of a coverup and has the potential to dampen public confidence in the Office of Special Prosecutor if not reviewed immediately. The conduct of Charles Adu Boahen constitutes corruption of monumental proportions and must not go unpunished.”

The Tuesday, October 31 statement added that “having forensically verified the audiovisual recording adduced by Tiger Eye P.I as a true reflection of the events represented thereon, and having conclusively established that Charles Adu Boahen indeed, demanded a bribe of 20% of the value of the initial investment or an upfront payment of 10% of the value of the proposed investment and a post-investment sharing of the proceeds of same from undercover agents of Tiger Eye P.I who were posing as businessmen interested in investing in Ghana, it is totally unacceptable for the OSP to have concluded that Charles Adu is not guilty of a crime.”

“For the avoidance of doubt, Charles Adu Boahen’s conduct as captured in the “Galamsey Economy” documentary of Tiger Eye P.I clearly amount to the offence of Extortion as provided under section 247 of the Criminal and Other Offenses Act, 1960 (ACT 29), as amended.”

Sammy Gyamfi thus stated that that the next NDC government shall institute criminal investigations into this matter with the objective of prosecuting all those found culpable.

He also urged the public to treat the report with the contempt it deserves and demand a total reversal of this disappointing decision of the OSP.
