Joseph Dindiock Kpemka, Deputy Minister of Justice and Attorney-General (A-G), has revealed that the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service has concluded its investigations into the Number 12 exposé which has the former President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwasi Nyantakyi at the center of the controversy.
He noted that the docket containing the evidence or otherwise, is ready to be submitted to the Attorney-General’s office either on Thursday or Friday, November 2, 2018.
“What we are going to do and what we are doing in respect of the matter is the fact that the CID did investigations into the case. They have gathered their evidence – the facts and the necessary documentations and as I speak with you, I can tell you on authority that they have confirmed that they are done with their investigations and they are forwarding their documents to us sometime today or tomorrow”.
“So, all these while, I can tell you that there was no documentary evidence of whatever form of the investigative body to our office for us to look at whether to prosecute or not. So, the cries people were making that we had delayed were misplaced because the documents hadn’t been forwarded to us”, noted Mr. Kpemka.

Commenting further, he said once the docket on the matter is received; the A-G will review it with a legal eye and advise on the appropriate charges that should be applied if there is any evidence of wrongdoing against former GFA President.
“If we come to the conclusion that an offense has been committed by reviewing it legally, then the public will actually know what is going on.
We are going to engage in prosecutorial mission as and when the need arises and that is upon a review and legal analysis of what is going to be submitted to us today or tomorrow as the CID indicated. The government and the Attorney-General led by Madam Gloria Akufo have never shed their responsibility”, he explained.
