The Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu, has described as “opportunistic and populist” a petition by Civil Society Organisation (STRANEK), urging his office to investigate the controversial Agyapa Royalties deal.

In a response to the group, the Special Prosecutor said his office has already independently commenced investigations into the matter and therefore cannot commit resources to follow up on STRANEK’s petition.

STRANEK in its petition to the Office of the Special Prosecutor earlier this month said it wants the office to investigate how the value of the royalties being ceded to Agyapa Royalties was calculated by government and also disclose the entity involved in the evaluation.

The petition said the Agyapa deal is shrouded in illegality, secrecy and issues of conflict of interest and therefore inimical to the interest of the good people of Ghana.
