The hearing on Cecilia Dapaah’s request to halt OSP from freezing her accounts adjourned to February 1
Former Sanitation Minister Cecilia Dapaah’s motion to the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) to stop freezing accounts and seizing cash found at her Abelemkpe house has been postponed until February 1, 2024.
The former minister’s Prudential Bank and Société Générale bank accounts were frozen by the OSP after large quantities of money were discovered in her residence during a search.
The High Court in Accra ordered the OSP to release the $590,000 and GH2.73 million confiscated from Cecilia Dapaah’s residence within seven days on August 31, 2023.
In response, the OSP disagreed with the court’s decision and asked the Human Rights Court to allow the former minister’s property and cash to be frozen indefinitely.
Cecilia Dapaah requested that the freezing and seizure case be accelerated in an application on October 9, 2023.
The case has been deferred until February 1, according to the OSP’s Facebook page.
“The Human Rights Court sitting in Accra has adjourned to 1 February 2024 the case in which former Sanitation Minister, Cecilia Abena Dapaah, and her husband, Daniel Osei Kuffuor, have filed an interlocutory injunction application against the OSP to restrain the Office from continuing to freeze Madam Dapaah’s accounts and seizing cash recovered from their residence.”
