The Office of the Special Prosecutor has eliminated five bank accounts belonging to former sanitation minister Cecilia Dapaah from its tainted property list, a statement from the anti-graft body on Monday (16 October) said.
The office of the special prosecutor commenced investigations in July 2023 in respect of suspected corruption and corruption-related offences regarding large amounts of money and other valuable items involving Dapaah after huge sums were stolen from her private property at Abelemkpe in Accra.
The special prosecutor took measures, including issuing a freezing order in respect of the bank accounts and other financial assets of the former minister to facilitate the investigations.
“Subsequently, the investigations have eliminated five of the bank accounts of Dapaah from suspicion of being tainted property,” the statement said, adding that “the freezing order is still in place and effect in respect of the other bank accounts and financial assets of Ms Dapaah.”
