The Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) has asked Ghanaians to disregard reports that it has withdrawn its petition to the Chief Justice to reassign Justice Edward Twum from cases involving the OSP and Cecilia Dapaah.
The OSP filed a petition against Justice Twum, who denied the first confirmation application against Dapaah, accusing him of prejudice against the OSP and the Special Prosecutor.
Some publications claimed the OSP had withdrawn the application.
This was also mentioned by Paul Adom Otchere, host of Good Evening Ghana on Metro Television.
But in the response, the OSP asked the public to disregard the story and described it as false.
The judge had also confirmed that the OSP was no longer pursuing the petition.
The judge later clarified that the earlier information was incorrect, as the OSP was attempting to have the Chief Justice remove the judge.
The response from the OSP said, “The Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP), has not withdrawn its request to the Chief Justice for the recusal and removal of his Lordship Justice Edward Twum from all cases pending before him involving the OSP.
The public is urged to disregard all reports to the contrary.”
