Deputy SP Faces Vetting Committee Today
Parliament will later today vet the President’s nominee for the position of Deputy Special Prosecutor.
Miss Jane Naa Korshie Lamptey was named last month as the public official to assist Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu in the fight against graft in public offices.
Madam Lamptey comes to the position with at least 30 years experience at the bar. She also served as the Director of Public Prosecutions.
All things being equal, should Madam Lamptey pull through her vetting today by parliament, she would deputised the opposition stalwart, Martin Amidu at the newly created role of Special Prosecutor of corruption cases.
The establishment of the anti-graft office headed by former Attorney General Martin Amidu is among a string of measures that President Akufo-Addo, has taken to stamp out pervasive corruption in the cocoa- and gold-rich West African nation.
