Lawyers for Charles O. Bissue, who served as secretary to the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining (IMCIM), are claiming that their client has been ‘exonerated’ by police investigations on allegations of corruption.

Mr. Bissue, who is also a Presidential Staffer, in a letter to the President in March this year, decided to step aside to avail himself for investigations after the Anas-Tiger Eye PI documentary which exposed alleged corruption in the activities of IMCIM.

The Anas documentary had said the secretary was involved in shady deals to facilitate processes for a mining firm called ORR Resource Enterprise.

The law firm, Ampofo, Oppong & Associates, lawyers for Mr. Bissue are saying that the Police Criminal Investigations Department (CID) did not find any wrongdoing against their client.

Attempts by DAILY GUIDE to ascertain the veracity of the firm’s claim from the police proved futile.

According to the lawyers, the CID concluded that Charles Bissue did not ‘circumvent’ the laid-down procedures of the IMCIM in order to favour ORR Resource Enterprise – the company at the centre of the incident.

The report also observed that the documentary which was aired is not a true reflection of what transpired between the Presidential Staffer/Secretary and the said Yaw Ben of ORR Resource Enterprise.

“The lead investigator of the Tiger Eye Documentary, Anas Aremeyaw Anas failed to avail himself to assist in investigations and also failed to provide a copy of the unedited version of the documentary.

He said he had already filed a petition with the Office of the Special Prosecutor; the firm quoted the CID report as saying.

It also indicated that the key witness, Yaw Ben, failed to assist in the investigations to substantiate the claims of bribery against the respective suspects.

The report concluded that Charles Bissue was not found to be culpable for any offence.

A parallel investigation by the Special Prosecutor is ongoing.
