The Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service has exonerated Charles Cromwell Nanabanyin Onuawonto Bissue, a Presidential Staffer, who was accused of working against the country’s efforts to end illegal mining.
Lawyer for Mr Bissue, Yaw Oppong, who confirmed this in an interview, said after a thorough investigation by the CID on the matter, his client was cleared of any wrongdoing.
He said Mr Bissue did not circumvent the laid down procedures of the Inter-Ministerial Committee on illegal Mining to favour ORR Resource Enterprise, the company at the centre of the incident.
He said the report by the CID also observed that the documentary, which was aired, was not a true reflection of what transpired between the Presidential Staffer/Secretary and the said Yaw Ben of ORR Resource Enterprise
“The lead investigator of the Tiger Eye Documentary, Anas Aremeyaw Anas failed to avail himself to assist in investigations and also failed to provide a copy of the unedited version of the documentary. He said he has already filed a petition with the Office of the Special Prosecutor,” the lawyer told Accra based Okay FM, monitored by Adomonline.com.
The report, he noted, therefore concluded that, Mr Bissue was not found to have committed any offence.
