Former National Democratic Congress (NDC) Central Regional Chairman Bernard Allotey Jacobs has launched a volley at Professor Kwabena Frimpong Boateng, the former Environment Minister.
According to him, Prof. Frimpong Boateng shares the same culpability as those he has charged with galamsey, the term for illicit mining.
“It will be good for him if he shuts up. I expect him to sit somewhere and be very quiet after you were given four years. Some people were dismissed after one or two years but you (Frimpong Boateng) held your appointment for four years”, he fumed on Accra-based Peace FM.
Frimpong-Boateng’s sanctimonious demeanor is intolerable, he said.
In the meantime, Professor Frimpong Boateng has stated that the Attorney General’s (AG) position about his findings does not surprise him.
The office concluded there was insufficient evidence to bring charges against the individuals included in the report.
The AG’s office added that, it could not recommend the prosecution of any of the persons named in the report and asked the police to discharge the persons mentioned except those still under investigation.
