The Chairman of the Political Affairs Committee of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), Kwame Jantuah says the Special Prosecutor, Kissi Agyabeng was frustrated handling certain high-profile cases in the country.

The Lady Chief Justice Gertrude Sackey Torkornoo has directed to Special Prosecutor Kissi Agyabeng to “provide” his “comments to the matters raised” in a petition to her seeking an impeachment process against him.

Per information, as required by Article 146 of the Constitution, the Chief Justice is in the process of deciding if there is prima facie evidence to establish a committee for Mr. Agyabeng’s impeachment.

In the letter dated May 16, 2024, the Chief Justice said, the SP’s comments on the issues raised will “enable the Honourable Chief Justice to determine if a prima facie case has been made out.”

Commenting on the development during the Weekly Review Show on Starr FM, Mr. Jantauh stated that the Special Prosecutor needed some form of solace in handling some of the political cases.

“If you hear some of the things that he said, you could see that he was frustrated by the so-called interruption that he was facing with the case. That was where he indicated that he would be handing over the case to EOCO.

“Now, the challenge is if the Special Prosecutor is going through certain frustration. Who does he go to seek some kind of redress, does he go to the appointing person to try and discuss it? Does he go to the Attorney General, who does he go to air out his frustrations?” he asked.

He continued: “Or does he come back to the public as he has done in the past for the public to judge whether the things he is saying are hampering his work? I would have thought that the Special Prosecutor place when President Nana Addo formed was sacrosanct in terms of the work he does.”
