The Office of the Special Prosecutor has cleared Charles Adu Boahen, a former state minister in the finance ministry, of all corruption-related charges (OSP).
The OSP said in a report that although Adu Boahen’s activities are closely associated with corruption because they entail influence peddling or trading in influence, there is no legal prohibition on them that the OSP is required to further address.
Based on that calculation, the Special Prosecutor orders the investigation into the claims of corruption and offenses related to corruption involving Charles Adu Boahen to be closed at this time.
The allegations were reported in the investigative documentary Galamsey Economy, which was released by Tiger Eye P.I.
If new information and the circumstances warrant it, the investigation may be reopened.
The accusations made against Charles Adu Boahen in the Galamsey Economy exposé were the subject of an inquiry launched by the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) sometime last year.
“The Office of the Special Prosecutor has promptly commenced investigations into the action of Charles Adu Boahen and any other implicated person contained in the investigative exposé Galamsey Economy,” said a statement released by the OSP on Tuesday, November 15, 2022.
On Monday (14 November 2022), President Akufo-Addo terminated the Adu Boahen’s appointment following reports of allegations set out in a documentary by the investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
The Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) conducted an investigation into the charges leveled against Charles Adu Boahen in the Galamsey Economy exposé at some point last year.
In a statement issued on Tuesday, November 15, 2022, the Office of the Special Prosecutor stated that it had “promptly commenced investigations into the action of Charles Adu Boahen and any other implicated person contained in the investigative exposé Galamsey Economy.” President Akufo-Addo removed Adu Boahen from office on Monday, November 14, 2022, in response to allegations made in a documentary by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
“The president spoke with Adu Boahen after learning of the accusations made against the minister in the exposé Galamsey Economy.
He then decided to end his appointment and refer the case to the Special Prosecutor for additional investigations,” the Presidency said in a statement.
