Speaking at the Anti-corruption conference at Accra, on the 10th Of December, the president of the Republic of Ghana, has made it clear that, with the help of the Attorney General they have prosecuted some public stakeholders who have been accused of economic crime, corruption and other breaches. As part of his fight against corruption, he will ensure all other high profile personality, charged with corruption will face the law impartially.

He added that “Many other high-profile prosecutions involving corruption, economic crime, fraud,procurement breaches and money laundering, like the Republic vs. Alhaji Collins Dauda & 4 Others in the Saglemi Scandal; Republic vs. Ernest Thompson & Others; Republic vs. Dr Kwabena Duffuor & Others; Republic vs. Stephen Opuni & Others, are ongoing. It is worthy to note that these cases have, as their sole object, the principle of holding public officers to account, and involve sums in excess of $850 million and GH₵2 billion,” he added.

The recent example of a financial house claiming payment of interest of some GH¢1.3 billion after 11 years, from a transaction involving a meagre GH¢268,000 in 2008, even after the state had already paid some GH¢79 million, comes to mind”.

He concluded that “Through the effort of the Attorney General, the Supreme Court declared further payment as unlawful, saving the State some two hundred and thirty million dollars(US$230 million),”

He informed the assembly about how the Attorney General have been able to set aside a judgement debt in excess of US$15.3 million imposed by the High Court, Kumasi, in an action arising out of the activities of the erstwhile Inter-Ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining about two years ago.
