According to citinewsroom.com, former sanitation minister Cecilia Dapaah is asking for a speedy hearing on her appeal against the proceedings taken by the Office of the Special Prosecutor to confirm the seizure of cash discovered at her home and the freezing of her bank accounts.
Cecilia Dapaah asserts that she has experienced difficulty, worry, and shame as a result of these activities.
Dapaah formally requested that the hearing process be sped up, noting the urgency of her predicament.
This motion follows the High Court’s first denial of a comparable application and its subsequent directive to the anti-corruption organization to unfreeze her bank accounts and give her the confiscated funds back.
Dapaah filed an appeal when the Office of the Special Prosecutor eventually reclaimed the money and re-froze her bank accounts.
Following the submission of the confirmation application on September 11, the matter had been set for a hearing on October 18.
Dapaah is seeking that the matter be heard on October 11 in an effort to hasten the conclusion.
Dapaah has also denied claims made by the Office of the Special Prosecutor that she was engaged in real estate business while using aliases and that money was still being transferred to her from her late brother’s bank accounts.
In an affidavit disputing the confirmation of the re-seized GH2.83 million and the continuation of the suspension of her bank accounts, she addressed these charges.
