The Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) has met with officials of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Department of Justice (DOJ) at their Washington D.C. headquarters.
The purpose of the OSP’s visit to the FBI was to gain insights into their organizational structure, operations, and best practices, and enhance collaboration and capacity building.
The Special Prosecutor met with Jason Beachy, the Acting Assistant Director of the International Operations Division at the FBI, and a host of unit chiefs.
During the visit to the Department of Justice (DOJ), the OSP was received by Arun G. Rao, Deputy Assistant Attorney General, and Richard Goldberg, Deputy Director of the Consumer Protection Branch (CPB) within the Justice Department’s Civil Division.
The Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) on October 11 announced that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in the United States of America had initiated investigations into the activities of former Sanitation Minister, Cecilia Abena Dapaah and her associates.
The OSP in a post on ‘X’ formerly Twitter indicated that “These investigations primarily focus on examining their assets and financial transactions within the United States of America.”
According to the OSP, the collaborative effort is to ascertain the lawfulness of Ms Dapaah and her associates’ wealth, “both in the context of their funds transitioning from Ghana to the United States and vice versa.”
Ms Dapaah came into the limelight in July when it emerged that two of her house helps were before an Accra Circuit Court, for allegedly stealing monies and items running into millions of Ghana Cedis.
She subsequently resigned from her position on July 22, 2023, after intense calls from the public.
