Judgement in NCA case “reasoned and solid” – Private legal practitioner Korieh Duodu


A private legal practitioner and anti-corruption expert, Korieh Duodu, has said the decision by the court in the NCA case provides the clearest indication yet of the application of laws to combat corruption.
In an interview with Corruption Watch he explained the decision also showed how state agencies could work together to ensure corruption cases are effectively investigated, prosecuted, accused persons convicted and the proceeds of the crime potentially recovered.


“Well, I think that this is a reasoned and solid judgement, delivered after a case has been investigated and prosecuted over two-and-a-half years…And I would say that this is a significant case with important ramifications in Ghana’s fight against corruption because it has a number of powerful features to it which should stand Ghana in good stead in recovering stolen funds in future.”


The full interview with Corruption Watch’s Frederick Asiamah is to be broadcast on Corruption Watch’s podcast soon.In the same podcast, Mrs Linda Ofori-Kwafo, Executive Director of Ghana Integrity Initiative, views the judgement as a shot in the arm for anti-corruption crusaders. “I think it’s a boost and reassurance that there is hope and that if we continue to do the right things we are likely to get the results that we are looking for.”
