About The Office Of The Special Prosecutor

The Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) was established in 2018 as the gold standard and flagship specialized independent anti-corruption institution in Ghana, in pursuance of the United Nations Convention Against Corruption. The OSP has the object of investigating and prosecuting specific cases of alleged or suspected corruption and corruption-related offenses in the public and private sectors, recovering the proceeds of such acts by disgorging illicit and unexplained wealth and taking steps to prevent corruption.

The specialized attribute of the OSP particularly lies in its fortification with the cure of the inadequacies of the existing anti-corruption agencies by being designed as a comprehensive anti-graft agency with investigative, prosecutorial, intelligence gathering, surveillance, and counter-surveillance, police, national security, and revenue-generating powers.

The OSP derives its powers mainly from the Office of the Special Prosecutor Act, 2017 (Act 959), Office of the Special Prosecutor Regulations, 2018 (L.I. 2373), Office of the Special Prosecutor (Operations) Regulations, 2018 (L.I. 2374), and other laws bearing on the suppression and repression of corruption.    

In addition to taking its own initiative, the OSP also receives and acts on referrals of investigations of alleged corruption and corruption-related offenses from Parliament, the Auditor-General, the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice, the Economic and Organised Crime Office, and any other public institution. The Office also receives and acts on complaints from private entities and individuals.
