The former secretary to the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining has been cleared of corruption by the Ghana Police Service.
The Police Criminal Investigations Department (CID) cleared Mr Charles Cromwell Bissue after it concluded its four-month investigations into Tiger Eye PI’s allegations against the former Presidential Staffer.
Mr Bissue was accused by undercover journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas and his Tiger Eye PI team of circumventing the law to grant mining license to ORR Resource Enterprise to engage in small-scale mining while a ban on same was in force.Top Stories On Adomonline.com(19-7-19)Volume 90%
Mr Bissue stepped aside as secretary to the committee to allow smooth investigations into the matter.
But, a report clearing Mr Bissue from the allegations said that the documentary — which shows Mr Bissue taking money from undercover reporters — was not a true reflection of what transpired between Mr Bissue and the assigns of the said ORR Resource Enterprise, the Daily Graphic reported on Monday.
The report also said Mr Anas failed to cooperate with the CID in the course of the investigations.
“The raw and unedited footage, which was demanded from the journalist, was not submitted,” the CID said.
Mr Anas has, however, said that he had submitted the said raw and unedited footage to the office of the Special Prosecutor.
“To the extent that the Office of Special Prosecutor (OSP) is a statutory body and has taken possession of the raw footage, if the police investigators were minded, they could obtain a copy from the OSP,” said Mr Anas.
No mining activities
The CID’s investigations also revealed that no mining activity had taken place at the site of ORR Enterprise which is located at Dawuaso in the Ashanti region.
The report subsequently exonerated all suspects cited in the documentary, the Daily Graphic said, quoting the report which said: “at the conclusion of investigations…none of the suspects was found to be culpable for any offence.”
The Special Prosecutor’s investigations are meanwhile yet to be concluded.
