Mr Kissi Agyebeng

Investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, has congratulated Mr Kissi Agyebeng on his appointment as Special Prosecutor.

In a Facebook post, Anas, known to be a client of Mr Agyebeng, welcomed the new Special Prosecutor with a heartwarming message, “Kissi Agyebeng: Hearty congratulations on your swearing-in as Special Prosecutor for the Republic of #Ghana. Wishing you the very best!”

President Akufo-Addo officially swore into office, Kissi Agyebeng as the Special Prosecutor on Thursday at the Jubilee House.

The 43-year-old Lawyer takes over from Martin Amidu who resigned from office in November 2020 after accusing the President of interference in his work.

During the swearing-in ceremony, the President urged the new appointee to always bear in mind that although, “the remit of the office is broad and challenging” he has a responsibility to fight corruption independently and impartially.

He also assured Mr Agyebeng that no appointee from his government will interfere in his duties as required by the law.

The office of the Special Prosecutor is a creation of Parliament that serves as an independent investigating and prosecution body to make inquiries into corruption, bribery, or other criminal cases at the national level either in the public or private sector.

Mr Agyebeng is expected to serve a 7-year mandate.
