Special Prosecutor nominee, Mr. Kissi Agyebeng is scheduled to be vetted by Parliament’s Appointments Committee today, Thursday, July 22, 2021.
The vetting will take place at the committee rooms 1,2, and 3 of the New Administration Block of Parliament House at 10:00 am.
Anti-corruption campaigner group, Citizens’ Movement Against Corruption, want the Appointments Committee to thoroughly interrogate all red flags raised about the nomination of Kissi Agyebeng as Special Prosecutor when the nominee appears before them for vetting.
Convener of the Citizens’ Movement Against Corruption, Edem Senanu indicated that issues such as conflict of interest and others raised by some concerned persons including Martin Amidu against Agyebeng must not be taken lightly but must be probed.
“Parliament needs to adequately interrogate the issues that have been raised in the public space. Bright Simons talks about the Agyapa issue. Martin Amidu himself has also spoken about the relationship [of Agyebeng] with some persons named in the Agyapa report, and so to prevent a situation of a potential or actual conflict of interest [such issue must be probed],” he said.
