The Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) has met with officials of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Department of Justice (DOJ) at their Washington, D.C., headquarters.

The purpose of the OSP’s visit is to gain insights into the FBI’s organisational structure, operations, and best practices and enhance collaboration and capacity building.

The OSP announced this on its official X page formerly Twitter.

The Special Prosecutor, Kissi Agyebeng, met with the Acting Assistant Director of the International Operations Division at the FBI, Jason Beachy, and a host of unit chiefs.

The OSP delegation was received by Deputy Assistant Attorney General Arun G. Rao and Deputy Director of the Consumer Protection Branch (CPB) Richard Goldberg, within the Justice Department’s Civil Division.

The visit comes a few weeks after the OSP announced that it has sought the assistance of the FBI to investigate the activities of former Minister of Sanitation and Water Resources, Cecilia Dapaah and her associates.

Announcing this on Twitter, the OSP said the US-based agency will primarily examine assets and financial transactions within the United States (US).

The OSP explained that the collaborative effort is to ascertain the lawfulness of Ms Dapaah and her associates’ wealth “both in the context of their funds transitioning from Ghana to the United States and vice versa.”
