The Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) has preferred fresh charges on the former Chief Executive Officer of Public Procurement Authority (PPA), Adjenim Boateng Adjei.
The OSP has charged him with eight counts of using public office for profit and nine counts of directly and indirectly influencing the procurement process to obtain an unfair advantage in the award of a procurement contract.
A statement issued by the Office of the Special Prosecutor to announce these charges noted that the brother-in-law of Adjenim Boateng, Francis Kwaku Arhin has also been charged with one count of using public office for profit.
The statement added that “the two persons will be arraigned before the High Court (Criminal Division), Accra on Wednesday, 25 May, 2022.”
Meanwhile, new information emerging indicates that the dismissed Public Procurement Authority (PPA) boss has allegedly withdrawn all funds from his frozen bank accounts.
This flies in the face of a court order not to release cash from the account to Mr. Adjenim Boateng Adjei.
