Thompson - GOV.UK"/>
She says her observations of the feelings and perceptions of the Ghanaian people since arriving in the country indicate that corruption is getting worse, describing the situation as worrying.
“Government really needs to understand where those concerns are coming from and really need to get under the skin to investigate properly and hold people to account to that”, she said.
She says Government could make significant progress in its fight against corruption if it supported anti-craft institutions and organizations in the country to do their work independently and devoid of interference.
Ms Thompson further expressed her delight in the Office of the Special Prosecutor’s (OSP) handling the alleged cases of corruption in the country, especially with regards the Labianca alleged tax fraud saga.
“It was great to see for example the Office of the Special Prosecutor recently ceasing the assets of a well-known company. That’s a great example.
‘I’m happy that the Office of the Special Prosecutor is able to cease those assets and that I think that for those institutions like the office of the special prosecutor, like EOCO, NACOB, all of those institutions and organisations need to be independent to be able to do their job without fear or favour”, she said
Ms Harriet Thompson made these remarks in an interview with Joy News’ Emefa Apawu on “The Probe’ show last Sunday, August 28, 2022.
