The Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu has taken disciplinary action against one of his staff, PW/D. Sgt. Yaa Boakyewaa, for leaking confidential information and documents to unauthorized persons.
According to Amidu, he has handed her an indefinite suspension and wants the Inspector General of Police to remove her from his office.
This according to Citi News, was captured in a letter addressed to the IGP.
In the letter explaining the basis for her suspension and call for her removal from the office, Amidu insisted that the officer in question showed gross insubordination and impudence.
“She continued rudely and very insubordinately and had the impudence to tell me that I had no right to address her as a Sergeant when she had been promoted to an Inspector," he said
Martin Amidu in the document said after indicating to Sgt. Yaa Boakyewaa that the IGP had not communicated her supposed promotion formally to him, she “gave me a good dressing down and threw the letter on a table in my office.”
Last week, a list of 25 cases supposedly being pursued by the Office of the Special Prosecutor went viral on social media, with some persons named in the cases raising objections about their culpability in the said cases they were named in.
Although the Chairperson of the Board of Directors of the Office of the Special Prosecutor, Mrs Ofori-Kwafo, denied that the list was authentic, it was widely reported in the media with some expressing regret that such a list would leak from the office.
In the documents submitted to the IGP over the incident gave indications that the list was fake and a creation of PW/D. Sgt. Yaa Boakyewaa.
