The Economic and Organized Crime Office (EOCO) has requested that the Attorney General’s office expedite the amendment process to the EOCO Act.
Executive Director, COP Tiwaa Addo-Danquah, speaking at an event for Regional Directors and Heads of Units Conference in Accra on Thursday, January 27, 2022, highlighted that if the bill is updated, it will provide better working conditions.
COP Tiwaa Addo-Danquah stated that with the assistance of the AG’s office, they hope to learn the right procedures for things like constructing an airtight docket for prosecutions.
“How does police work affect you? How does GRA, Immigration? and somebody is coming to take us through this. We have also invited someone to take us through proper management of case dockets so that, honorable minister, when we bring our docket to you, it wouldn’t be like you’d have to do everything and list the type of things we have to complete before that docket is brought back to you, and that by the time that docket gets to you, it is complete and it is straight to the court”.
She also urged the AG to expedite the bill’s processing in the benefit of EOCO and its overall mission.
“I humbly plead that the amendment to the EOCO Bill that is already before your office, you work and speed it up because that bill, when passed, will address many welfare concerns of EOCO”.
