Officials from the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) have met with the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) in their Washington, D.C., headquarters.
The purpose of the OSP’s visit to the FBI was to gain insights into their organizational structure, operations, and best practices, and enhance collaboration and capacity building.
The Special Prosecutor met with Jason Beachy, the Acting Assistant Director of the International Operations Division at the FBI, and a host of unit chiefs.
Arun G. Rao, Deputy Assistant Attorney General, and Richard Goldberg, Deputy Director of the Consumer Protection Branch (CPB) within the Justice Department’s Civil Division, welcomed the OSP on their visit to the Department of Justice (DOJ).
On October 11, the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) revealed that the FBI in the United States had opened investigations into the actions of Cecilia Abena Dapaah, a former minister of sanitation, and her friends.
According to a statement by the OSP on ‘X’, formerly known as Twitter, “These investigations primarily focus on examining their assets and financial transactions within the United States of America.”
The OSP states that a joint effort is being made to determine if Ms. Dapaah and her companions’ wealth is legal “both in the context of their funds transitioning from Ghana to the United States and vice versa.”
Ms. Dapaah first gained attention in July when it was revealed that two of her housekeepers were in court in Accra for allegedly stealing millions of Ghana Cedis worth of goods and money.
On July 22, 2023, she resigned from her job as a result of several requests from the general people.
