Corruption Watch petitions Special Prosecutor over Sir John’s will

An anti-corruption group, Corruption Watch, has petitioned the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) to investigate the alleged state lands belonging to the late Chief Executive Officer of the Forestry Commission, Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie.

The Organisation’s Technical Advisor, William Nyarko in the signed letter noted that it is an offence for a person to use public office for personal profit.

Corruption Watch believes that the late politician, popularly known as Sir John abused his public office and dishonestly used it for his private benefit.

As such, the anti-graft group wants the Special Prosecutor to establish how the state lands, including several acres of lands situated in the Achimota Forest and Ramsar sites in Sakumono were secured by the late Sir John.
