    Galamsey: Court stops OSP from arresting Charles Bissue

    The Human Rights Division of the High Court in Accra has stopped the office of the special prosecutor from arresting the former secretary to the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining (IMCIM), Mr Charles Bissue.

    Mr Bissue is wanted by the OSP in connection with corruption-related allegations.

    The office issued a wanted notice to the public in that regard after Mr Bissue failed to honour an invitation by the Special Prosecutor.

    The 10-day interim injunction was granted by the court following ab application by Mr Bissue's lawyers.

    The court, presided over by Justice Nicholas Abodakpi, said the interim injunction also restrains the OSP from executing an arrest warrant against Mr Bissue, publishing any notice  that declares him a wanted person and applying for further warrant of arrest within the 10 day period.

    The court would hear the substantive case continues on June 22, 2023.
