The Office of the Special Prosecutor has referred the case involving Cecilia Dapaah to the Economic and Organized Crime Office (EOCO) for further investigation.

This comes after he withdrew the cases against her from the Court on Thursday, January 25, 2024.

The cases withdrawn include an application for a confirmation order to continue to freeze the assets of the former minister and a criminal case by the OSP, accusing the former minister of failing to declare her assets as enjoined by law.

Speaking to the Press after referring the case to EOCO, Kissi Agybeng who is the Special Prosecutor said “Members of the Press, on the totality of the gathered evidence and intelligence, it seems to us that the case is largely in the province of suspected money laundering and structuring.

By operation of Law, the Economic and Organized Crime Office (EOCO) has a specific and direct mandate in respect of suspected cases of money laundering and its attendant activity of structuring. Office of the Special Prosecutor is referring the case to EOCO for continuous Investigation and further action. The office will be in close collaboration with EOCO and continued collaboration with the FBI,” he said.
