The Office of Special Prosecutor has written to the Chief Justice, requesting that His Lordship Justice Edward Twum be removed from presiding cases involving former Sanitation Minister Cecilia Dapaah.
The OSP accuses the judge of being prejudicial against the OSP.
It is also their argument that the judge in question is also prejudicial against the person of Kissi Adjebeng, the Special Prosecutor.
A statement issued by the OSP explained that it cannot be parties to proceedings before the said judge.
Read the brief statement below
The OSP has requested the Chief Justice to recuse and remove His Lordship Justice Edward Twum from all cases involving the OSP pending before him.
The request is grounded on the OSP’s well-founded belief that Justice Edward Twum appears to be highly prejudiced against the OSP and the person of the Special Prosecutor.
Consequently, as it stands, the OSP would not and cannot be reasonably expected to be parties to proceedings before the said judge.
