High Court ‘blocks’ Special Prosecutor from freezing Sir John’s assets

An Accra High Court has prevented the Office of the Special Prosecutor from freezing the assets of late Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie (Sir John), former CEO of the Forestry Commission.

The Special Prosecutor had frozen the assets of Sir John for further investigation over suspected corruption.

The Office subsequently filed an application at the High Court for confirmation of the freezing order but the application was dismissed by an Accra High Court presided over by Her Ladyship, Justice Afia Serwaa Asare Botwe, on Tuesday, July 12, 2022.

Unhappy with the dismissal of the application, the Office of the Special Prosecutor in a statement insisted that  said: “the judge with respect totally misapprehended the application for confirmation of the freezing order and misdirected herself by characterizing the application as that of a confiscation order”.

The Office has thus decided to appeal the ruling.
