Cash for Justice: Attorney General interdicts Senior State Attorney Otoo-Boison

The senior state attorney who was seen taking money to compromise justice in the investigative piece by EIB’s Edward Adeti has been interdicted by the Attorney General, Starr News has learnt.

The Judicial service board is also reportedly meeting over the next line of action to be meted to their official over the misconduct.

Lawrence Otoo-Boison, in a conversation caught on tape advised a crime suspect, who is said to be on the list of the International Criminal Police Organisation (INTERPOL), to run away from facing trial after taking a pregnant goat and cash from the suspect’s ‘agent’ in the latest undercover investigation on Ghana’s justice system.

The suspect, Mohammed Awal, is standing trial in the Upper East region for rape and is reportedly also wanted in Burkina Faso for alleged involvement in some crimes committed in the neighbouring West African country.

The state prosecutor gave the advice with a strong tone during the undercover piece by the journalist.

Otoo-Boison, has laid blame on government’s door for failing to provide him with airfare to the United Kingdom to pursue an alleged state-imposed programme, hence his decision to demand money for flight ticket from the relatives of a crime suspect.

The veteran state prosecutor also told an undercover agent engaged by Adeti to pose as a relative of an accused person, Mohammed Awal, who is standing trial in the Upper East region for alleged rape, that he was ready to take a bull from the suspect’s family and sell it to raise the airfare for the London trip.

Below is the video clip of that conversation:
