OSP’s Intimidatory Approach Made Me Uncooperative – Appiah-Kubi1 min read
The Member of Parliament for Asante Akim North Kwame Andy Appiah-Kubi has said officials of the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) who came to Parliament to interrogate him in the investigation of the bribery allegation adopted an intimidatory approach.
Speaking on the Key Points on TV3 on Saturday, January 6, he said: “His approach failed him.”
“The OSP officials started fighting me so I decided to remain silent, they had already come to me with a hostile attitude even in the precincts of Parliament, and they asked the other MPs who came to leave.
“The OSP officials did not understand the ethics of the profession that you need to show courtesy to everyone who comes before you,” he added.
“This intimidatory approach and the disrespect to the other MPs who were asked to leave was not helpful,” he stressed.
The Special Prosecutor (SP) directed the closure of investigations into allegations that were made by Appiah-Kubi. The lawmaker had alleged that 80 Members of Parliament of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) received bribe from an unnamed businessman to back down on their demand for the resignation of Mr. Ken Ofori-Atta.
