Court Approves Cecilia Dapaah’s Application Amidst Cash Seizure

Sanitation Minister, Cecilia Abena Dapaah

The High Court has granted former Sanitation Minister, Cecilia Dapaah, an expedited hearing for the case involving the seizure of her money and freezing of her bank accounts. Originally scheduled for October 18, the hearing will now take place on October 12.

The Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) had requested permission from the court to continue the seizure of money found at Cecilia Dapaah’s residence and freeze her bank accounts. Cecilia Dapaah, in turn, filed a petition to expedite the case, citing undue hardships because of delays.

Dapaah’s lawyers ligated that the delay in the case was causing hardships. The request for an expedited hearing would have no negative impact on the OSP’s confirmation application.

The OSP objected to the application, contending that it was designed to slow down their ability to respond to Dapaah’s opposing affidavit.

Dapaah’s lawyers responded by establishing her right to waive personal service. The OSP’s confirmation application filed on September 5 was seen as a repetition of a previous complaint that had been dismissed on August 31.

The court granted the application with a slight modification by rescheduling the confirmation hearing to October 12. Justice Eric Twum deemed further delays unfair to Dapaah and her husband.
