The Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in the United States of America have initiated concurrent investigations into the activities of former Sanitation Minister, Cecilia Abena Dapaah and her associates.

The OSP in a post on ‘X’ formerly Twitter on Wednesday indicated that “These investigations primarily focus on examining their assets and financial transactions within the United States of America.”

According to the OSP, the collaborative effort is to ascertain the lawfulness of Ms Dapaah and her associates’ wealth, “both in the context of their funds transitioning from Ghana to the United States and vice versa.”

Ms Dapaah came into the limelight in July when it emerged that two of her house helps were before an Accra Circuit Court, for allegedly stealing monies and items running into millions of Ghana Cedis.

She subsequently resigned from her position on July 22, 2023, after intense calls from the public.

Meanwhile, the former Sanitation Minister has filed an interlocutory injunction application against the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) in an attempt to stop the Office from investigating and prosecuting her and her husband, Daniel Osei Kufuor on charges of suspected corruption and corruption-related offenses.
