Charles Bissue’s case against OSP arrest warrant reassigned and postponed

The legal proceedings involving Charles Bissue, the former Secretary to the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining (IMCIM), have been reassigned to a new judge and postponed to July 2, 2024.

The case revolves around Bissue’s application for certiorari, seeking to nullify an alleged arrest warrant and a wanted notice issued against him.

On June 13, 2023, the Office of the Special Prosecutor declared Charles Bissue wanted after he failed to comply with an invitation to answer questions related to a corruption investigation within the now-dissolved IMCIM.

In response to the ongoing investigation led by the Special Prosecutor into alleged corruption involving Prof. Kwabena Frimpong Boateng, Chairman of the IMCIM, Bissue recently filed a writ at the High Court in Accra to prevent the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) from prosecuting him.

According to a Facebook post by the OSP on May 30, a YouTube video recording submitted by Charles Bissue is slated to be played in court, potentially followed by a cross-examination of Bissue’s lawyer, Nana Agyei Baffour.

“Of contention currently is an assertion on oath by lawyer for Charles Bissue that the OSP unlawfully obtained an arrest warrant, prompting the court to restrain the OSP from arresting Bissue for ten (10) days. The OSP refutes the existence of such a warrant and demands evidence from Bissue and his legal team.”
