The Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) has disrupted a syndicate involved in the production of substantial amount of counterfeited foreign currency in Ghana.

According to the OSP, seizures were made in two warehouses located in Accra and Tema, where a substantial amount of counterfeited US$40 million was discovered concealed in steel trunks.

This is contained in a terse slide update released on Friday (15 December) on the activities of the Special Prosecutor Kissi Agyebeng since assuming office in 2021.

The information was released as part of the updates from the OSP this week on some of the works the office has been doing since 2021 when Kissi Agyebeng started work as the Special Prosecutor.

No further details have been released about this special operation involving the substantial amount of foreign currency.

Even though the OSP has not released much details about the said operation, as to when this operation took place, Graphic Online gathers from sources that it was a highly classified and well coordinated operation.

Someone is suspected to have given a tip off to the currency operators about the OSP’s operation and planned swoop.

This enabled the suspects to bolt in a hurry and didn’t have much time to pack everything on a short notice.
