Speaking in an interview with Class FM, Madam Linda Ofori Kwarfo revealed that the Special Prosecutor, Lawyer Martin Amidu will in no time go public on the progress of work on cases so far.According to her, a series of underground work has been carried out by the office as they continue to look into a number of cases laid before them.“If you look at the Special Prosecutors Act, there is a provision that requires the office to make public to Ghanaians a list of cases they have been working on over a period of time.“I think it is supposed to be published in the daily newspapers.
It is supposed to be seen so that you tell the public I have been working on cases A, B, C, D and these are the results that am getting, these are matters that I have concluded and whatever. I know that the office in due course, not too long from now will publish this list”, Madam Linda Ofori Kwarfo emphasised.
