EOCO refute claims by OSP over handling of Cecilia Dapaah’s case

The Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) has refuted claims made by the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) regarding its handling of the investigation into former Sanitation Minister, Cecilia Dapaah.

The OSP alleged that EOCO displayed reluctance in pursuing money laundering charges against Dapaah by returning her case file.

Samuel Appiah Darko, Director of Strategy, Research, and Communications at the OSP, disclosed this information, suggesting a lack of interest from EOCO in pursuing the case.

However, EOCO has strongly disputed these accusations, denouncing them as an "undue misrepresentation of facts."

According to EOCO, they actively sought cooperation from the OSP, requesting a copy of the findings to facilitate their own investigation.

Despite discussions with OSP officials and assurances of cooperation, EOCO claims they did not receive any information from the OSP.

To address the public's concerns and correct what they perceive as misrepresentation, EOCO provided a detailed timeline of their interactions with the OSP.

They assert that after reviewing the case docket and consulting with the Attorney-General, they returned the original docket to the OSP.

The clash between EOCO and OSP raises questions about transparency and collaboration within law enforcement agencies, leaving the public skeptical about the handling of high-profile cases like Dapaah's.
