Nominated Special Prosecutor Kissi Agyabeng faces vetting today.

Lawyer Kissi Agyabeng, the nominated Special Prosecutor will be vetted today, Thursday, 22 July, by the Appointments Committee in parliament as he sets to lead the office of the Special Prosecutor.

His vetting will take place at the New Administration Block of Parliament House at 10:00 am in the rooms 1, 2 and 3.

Mr. Agyabeng will be the second person to take the position of Special Prosecutor in Ghana if his vetting yields a positive outcome. He will replace Mr. Martin Amidu, who resigned as Special Prosecutor after few disagreements popped up. Special Prosecutors are charged by the Constitution to investigate and prosecute corruption and it's related offences in Ghana.

Mr. Agyabeng was successful nominated by Attorney-General, Godfred Yeboah Dame and finally approved by the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

Mr. Agyabeng was a private legal practitioner, Managing partner at Cromwell Gray LLP Law Firm in Accra and also ,the chair of the Electronic Communications Tribunal. He was also criminal law Lecturer at the University of Ghana. His appointment came as less surprising to few people who knew him, since he has better experience in the field of law.

Corruption we know in this country is almost impossible to fight. Many Ghanaians fail to believe it can ever be solved. They see no reason to appoint special Prosecutors if nothing changes after they assume their positions.
