Cynthia Lamptey, a former Director of Public Presecutions, is likely to be appointed the deputy Special Prosecutor.
She has worked with Martin Amidu while he was the Attorney – General during the Mills reigime.
Madam Lamptey’s plausible appointment would be like a home coming union between her and Martin Amidu (the now Special Prosecutor).
For over 20yrs, Cynthia Lamptey has worked at the Attorney General’s Department until she was relieved of her post in 2015 although reports shows she was sacked.
Madam Lamptey was in charge of the criminal prosecution of NDC financier, Alfred Agbesi Woyome in the GH₵52million judgment debt controversies.
She is also in charge of the prosecution of the former Executive Director of the National Service Scheme, Alhaji Moro who is standing trial for allegedly stealing GH₵86.9million which is said to be the State’s.
To avoid accusations of political stigmatization leveled against government whenever it tries to go after former government officials accused of corruption, the Nana Akufo – Addo government created the office of the Special Prosecutor as the solution to independent prosecution for politicians to expose persons found in the engagement of corruption.
