The Special Prosecutor took the opportunity to familiarise the EU Ambassador with developments and priorities since taking over the Office in August 2021. The Special Prosecutor has started tackling his mandate, which comprises investigation, prosecution, prevention as well as asset-recovery. The Office of the Special Prosecutor is currently investigating about 40 cases and will begin prosecutions soon, starting with cases where sufficient evidence is readily available.
The EU Ambassador wished Kissi Agyebeng every success in his mission in light of the priority expressed by the government of Ghana to tackle and reduce corruption in the country. Both men agreed that corruption worldwide is an impediment to national development and to foreign investments.
Furthermore, the Ambassador informed that the EU is currently in the process of finalising its development assistance planning for the coming years. Strengthening the rule of law and accountability, being part of Ghana's priorities, is considered.
Ambassador Razaaly said to Kissi Agyebeng: ‘I pledge full co-operation from the EU through our new project to support your work to strengthen the rule of law, accountability and anti-corruption. Let us reinforce our partnership to achieve meaningful results during your tenure".
