A statement issued by the Office of the Special Prosecutor announcing the charges also added that the brother-in-law of Adjenim Boateng, Francis Kwaku Arhin has also been charged with one count of using public office for profit.
However, Adjenim Boateng Adjei and his brother-in-law, Francis Kwaku Arhin were granted bail to a tune of ₵5 million each by the Criminal Division of the Accra High Court.
The Special Prosecutor, Kissi Agyebeng, had earlier said his outfit has enough evidence to proceed with the prosecution case against former Adjenim Boateng Adjei, and his brother-in-law, Francis Kwaku Arhin.
“I have my firm conviction that we have every evidence to see the accused prosecuted on procurement breaches. The accused persons are the former Chief Executive of the PPA and his brother-in-law,” he told the media on Wednesday.
