This was one of his rarest moments since officially taking up the task of fighting corruption and corruption-related offences.
Usually energetic, Kissi Agyebeng is never one to sound frustrated during public engagements, as his stance since becoming Prosecutor has projected a man ready for action.
However, the Special Prosecutor’s demeanor at the just-ended press conference organized under his auspices suggests that all he is holding onto right now is his patriotism and sole commitment to uproot corruption to the best of his ability.
He had assembled a team of journalists to express his challenges emanating from the judiciary, which impedes his bid to successfully prosecute cases.
“As I said, I wasn’t sounding like a prophet of doom but there is Doom looming ahead of us, that very soon a murderer will boldly walk to go to seek an injunction. Should I feel frustrated and resign? I took an oath and in my life when I take on the reins to do something, I do it to the best of my ability,’ he said on Wednesday.
Mr. Kissi Agyabeng who appeared visibly unhappy, pained concerned told journalists that the developing trend of some judges skewing cases against the OSP has the potential to hamper the fight against corruption.
“Let us bring before you the body of our investigation as evidence. If you look at it, and you decide that the evidence does not shore up to the standard of proof required in criminal cases, you can dismiss it but don’t prevent us from doing our work, from investigating. It is dangerous.”
The Special Prosecutor called for support to effectively fight the graft.
