Kissi Agyebeng has been unanimously approved as the new Special Prosecutor by the Appointments Committee of Parliament.
The approval comes a few hours after his vetting by the Committee in Parliament today.
Mr Joe Osei Owusu who is the Chairman of the Committee disclosed that Mr Kissi Agyebeng performed well during the vetting hence the quick recommendation for approval.
Answering questions on graft during the vetting, Kissi Agyebeng said he can not uproot corruption entirely as Special Prosecutor, however, he will make it a difficult venture.
“There is no way I can stop corruption. But, I’m going to make corruption very costly to engage in”, he said.
“I am my own man and I’m coming with my own mind,” Agyebeng told the committee.
Agyebeng was nominated by the Attorney General, Godfrey Dame Yeboah as Ghana’s next Special Prosecutor.
Mr Agyebeng was called to the Bar in October 2003. He holds a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree from the University of Ghana and Master of Laws (LLM) degree from Dalhouse University and Cornell Law School.
He is a law lecturer at the Faculty of Law of the University of Ghana and engaged in private law practice.
