The Special Prosecutor (SP) has directed the closure of investigations into allegations that some Members of Parliament of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) received a bribe from an unnamed businessman to back down on their demand for the resignation of Mr. Ken Ofori-Atta. According to Mr Kissi Agyebeng, proceeding with investigations will yield no results.
“…the Special Prosecutor directs the closure of the investigation in respect of allegations that a well-known and wealthy businessman attempted to bribe a section of the majority caucus of Parliament. The Special Prosecutor determines that the institution of criminal proceedings, at this time, against the OSP’s identified suspect would serve no useful purpose,” a report dated December 28 sighted by 3News.com indicated.
The SP stated, “The investigation may be re-opened should the circumstances and further facts dictate.”
