Kissi Agyebeng approved less than 1hr after his vetting

The Chairman of the Appointments Committee of Parliament Joseph Osei Wusu has said the committee was satisfied with the answers provided by the Special Prosecutor nominee Kissi Agyebeng.

Rather, he said, if he is approved by Parliament, he will make the practice a high risk activity in order to deter people from indulging in it.

“There is no way I can stop corruption, God himself will not acclaim to that. I am going to make corruption costly, a high risk activity,” he said.

He added “I will institute what I call pressure for progress initiative. The will be a systemic review of public agencies.”

He further explained when wealth acquired by persons in Ghana can be described as unexplained wealth when he was asked to do so.

Asked by Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu to explain what unexplained wealth is, Mr Agyebeng said “It is a bit too overbroad to explain unexplained wealth in criminal jurisprudence.

“And so if we are to place it in proper context unexplained wealth, I would say if the person cannot reasonably explain as march against his lawful income, the amount of money in questions then that aspect in my opinion should be criminalized but if you can reasonably explain how you came by that amount of money then that should be acceptable.”

“Ghana needs a person who will fearlesly and courageously fight corruption to which we are told we lose 3billion US dollars annually to graft and economic related crimes ant fraudulent practices associated procurement and other unethical conduct in our country.”
