Former minister Cecilia Dapaah has made amendments to her charge sheet in relation to the prosecution of a significant amount of cash stolen from her residence.
The decision to amend the charge sheet comes after new properties suspected to have been purchased with the stolen cash were discovered.
Additionally, Dapaah has claimed ownership of $800,000 that allegedly belonged to her late brother. The police, who are prosecuting the case, have updated the charge sheet to include four new houses, cars, and other properties believed to have been acquired with Dapaah’s cash.
Three new suspects have also been added to the list, while one person has been discharged. Among the new properties discovered are two Honda Acura vehicles, estimated to be worth over GH¢600,000 Ghana cedis.
The four new houses, registered under the names of the main suspects, join the already identified properties in Amrahian and Tamale.
The amended charge sheet includes charges of conspiracy, stealing, and dishonestly receiving stolen cash. Two of the suspects, who are nursing mothers, have been granted bail, while the rest remain in police custody.
