Resign to restore your image, Crusaders Against Corruption cautions Kissi Agyebeng.

Lawyer Kissi Agyabeng

Mr Emmanuel Wilson Junior, the Chief Crusader of the Crusaders Against Corruption, has advised that Kissi Agyebeng respectfully withdraw himself from his post as Special Prosecutor.

Mr Wilson Jnr believes that taking this brave measure is necessary to defend Mr Kissi Agyebeng’s dwindling image.

Wilson Jr.’s remark comes after yet another effort by the special prosecutor to successfully prosecute an alleged state criminal, which resulted in a wild goose chase.

In a recent ruling, the Accra High Court overturned a report that accused Colonel Kwadwo Damoah, a former Commissioner of the Customs Division at the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA), and Joseph Adu Kyei, a former Deputy Commissioner of the Division, of using their positions to provide preferential tax treatment to the frozen foods company Labianca Company Limited.

In November 2022, the two accused, Colonel Damoah and Mr Kyei, filed a lawsuit against the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP), claiming that the OSP’s findings lacked merit and injured their reputation.

The Accra High Court ruled on Monday, November 27, 2023, imposing a GH₵10,000 fine and a restraining order against the OSP from further investigating the two identified individuals.

However, in a news release issued that same day, the OSP stated that it acted within its mandate in the matter and never exceeded its power.

In addition, the OSP dismissed the court’s verdict entirely.

Emmanuel Wilson Junior

However, Mr Emmanuel Wilson Junior, Chief Crusader of the Crusaders Against Corruption, has argued that the verdict is a smack in the face of the OSP, which has yet to win a case.

Mr Wilson Jnr denounced the OSP as one put up to condemn “innocent people on behalf of paymasters” during an appearance on Class 91.3 FM’s premier news programme, 505, on Tuesday, November 28.

like a result, he prayed that the new Special Prosecutor, Kissi Agyebeng, would leave “the mess” like his predecessor, Martin Amidu, had.
