Lawyer Charles Nana Benyin Bissue who was accused by Anas Aremeyaw and His Tiger PI team of bribery and corruption at his portfolio as the secretary to the Inter ministerial committee on illegal mining (IMCIM) has been exonerated by the Criminial investigations Department of the Ghana Police service according to the publisher newspaper.
Mr. Bissue resigned from his position following an Anas hollywood-style expose on alleged corrupt activities happening at the IMCIM, in which he was seen taking money on camera. Anas accused him of taking money to circumvent the law guiding the acquisition of licenses to mine, set out by the IMCIM.
Mr. Bissue denied the allegations, saying the money he was seen taking on camera wasn’t solicited in anyway before offering to help a company who pretended to be in distress and that the money was given to him as a form of appreciation, not by coercion while also stating firmly that he didn’t break any law.
Mr. Bissue who is a presidential staffer and doubles as the NPP Western Regional Secretary was under investigation by the CID following the allegations and the puplisher reports that the CID has exonerated him of any wrong doing after a lengthy investigation.
