In an effort to promote honesty, integrity, and accountability, the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) has held a sensitization session for over 2,000 students and staff at Labone Senior High School.


This event, part of the OSP's flagship "Youth in Anti-Corruption Initiative," aims to educate young people on actively participating in the fight against corruption.

Established under Section 2(c) of the Office of the Special Prosecutor Act, 2017 (Act 959), this initiative mandates the OSP to implement measures to prevent corruption.


During the session, participants were informed about the OSP's role in investigating, prosecuting, preventing, and recovering proceeds from corruption-related offenses.


The event featured interactive discussions on the societal impacts of corruption and the legal protections available for whistleblowers. The OSP also provided contact information for reporting suspected corruption.


Headmistress of Labone Senior High School, Rebecca Acorlor expressed her gratitude to the OSP for their efforts and invited the Office to continue engaging with students to further enhance anti-corruption awareness among the youth.
