Former General Secretary of the People's National Convention (PNC), Atik Mohammed, has strongly criticised the Special Prosecutor, Kissi Agyebeng, urging him to focus on executing corruption cases instead of lamenting about the challenges with the judiciary.

Atik Mohammed frowns on the behaviour of the Special Prosecutor, asserting that Agyebeng's actions and statements betray the very objectives of his office.

He emphasised the need for the Special Prosecutor to up his legal game and concentrate on presenting strong cases in court.

"If you strongly believe in your case that what you did was lawful and you were bounced, what do you do? You move up; you don't come and organise a press conference and tell us that there seems to be a grand conspiracy against you. Are you the only one who goes to court? Are you the only person who is a lawyer?" Atik questioned.

Speaking on Peace FM's "Kokrokoo" morning show, Atik Mohammed admonished Kissi Agyebeng to refrain from complaining about judges dismissing cases.

"We set up this office for good reason and his behaviour and actions are betraying the very objective of this office. We set it up to be able to fight corruption but I can't see any corruption case he has fought successfully to the end," Atik criticised.

Atik also questioned Agyebeng's assertion that there might be a conspiracy by some judges to frustrate his work.

"He should up his legal game. Is he telling me that he always goes to one court or only one Judge presides over all his cases? It cannot be that all the Judges work in a league to frustrate you alone.

“Are you the only one leading an anti-corruption agency in this country? The Attorney General, himself, who does even more cases than you is not complaining that there is a conspiracy against him...You have no room to lament. He should up his legal game," Atik insisted.
