Presidential Staffer and Western Regional Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party(NPP), Charles Bissue has said his pending case with the Special Prosecutor will not stop him from discharging his official duties.
“I won’t let somethings stop me from serving my country fully, I’ll still carry on with my work” he told Kasapa 102.5 FM Monday.
On the issue about case, he emphasised:”Vindication is the womb of time. The Police have released their report on the matter, and we are waiting on the Special Prosecutor to do same. So I’m patiently waiting for the report of the Special Prosecutor”
Charles Bissue willingly stepped aside to allow for investigations into the matter after the documentary by investigative Journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas exposed state officials including him[Secretary to the Inter-Ministerial Committee] allegedly taking bribes.
Meanwhile, the Inter-ministerial Committee on Illegal mining is still waiting for the report from the Special Prosecutor to take action on the pending matter despite the Criminal Investigations Department of the Ghana Police Service clearing Charles Bissue of any wrongdoing.
Anas and his TigerEye PI team in February 2019 published the investigative video which showed state officials including the then secretary of the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining and presidential staffer, Charle Bissue, allegedly taking bribes to sidestep the laid down procedures for the procurement of mining licenses.
Following the release of the video, Anas and his team formally petitioned the office of the Special Prosecutor to probe the matter and deal with persons who compromised their positions.
The team also made available the video documentary that showed the officials taking bribes to the Special Prosecutor’s office.
