The Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) has decided to revoke the freezing order on five bank accounts that belong to the former Minister of Sanitation and Water Resources, Madam Cecilia Abena Dapaah.

However, it is important to note that the freezing order for her other bank accounts remains in effect. This statement was issued by the Special Prosecutor, Kissi Agyebeng, in a document dated Monday, October 16, 2023.

In the statement, Agyebeng specified, “The freezing order is still in force and effect in respect of the other bank accounts and financial assets of Ms. Dapaah.”

The investigation by the OSP into alleged corruption and corruption-related offenses involving a substantial sum of money and valuable items associated with Madam Dapaah commenced in July 2023.

The Special Prosecutor took measures to facilitate the investigation, including issuing a freezing order pertaining to the bank accounts and other financial assets of Cecilia Dapaah.

The embattled former Minister had earlier been charged by the OSP for failing to declare her income and property.

According to the statement of offense filed at the High Court on Friday, October 6, the OSP alleged that Cecilia Dapaah failed to respond to a notice to declare her property, which had been served on Monday, July 24, within the 30-day timeframe stipulated by the OSP Act.

The OSP argued that this non-compliance constitutes a violation of the OSP Act, for which she should face consequences.
