Renowned heart surgeon and former Minister of Environment, Science, Technology, and Innovation, Professor Kwabena Frimpong-Boateng, is on a GHC2M bail after his arrest by the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP).

He was arrested Wednesday June 7, 2023 in connection with ongoing investigation into work by the dissolved Inter-Ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining (IMCIM) which he chaired.

The OSP had earlier invited the Professor, leading to his subsequent arrest.

Speaking on Starr Today on Starr FM, Professor Frimpong Boateng said no specific charges were leveled against him except the OSP said that they were investigating corruption and corruption-related activities of Inter-Ministerial Committee which he chaired.

“I was asked a number of questions for about two hours and after that I was told I needed to be bailed. So a friend of mine bailed me and they went to his house to see where he was staying so in case I absconded they will get somebody to apprehend.”
