Albert Kan Dapaah, Minister of National Security, has conveyed his extreme gratitude to the Economic and Organized Crime Office (EOCO) for its efforts in battling economic crime.
He claims that he is extremely pleased with the projects and results that EOCO has accomplished recently, notably the effective creation of the Assets Recovering and Management Policy Framework.
The National Security Minister remarked, “Thanks to the fantastic work that we are witnessing at EOCO and I must admit that I’m really satisfied and very happy with the way things are developing,” during the Accra inauguration of the new policy framework and its implementation committee.
Standard operating procedures for Assets recovery and management are provided by the Assets Recovering and Management Policy Framework. With assistance from their partners, EOCO took the lead in creating the policy document.
According to Albert Kan Dapaah, the lack of such a crucial framework has prevented the state from having a clear strategy in its fight against economic crime.
“Our dear country has been deprived of maximizing advantages from the efforts of institutions like EOCO throughout the years due to the lack of a comprehensive policy framework to govern asset recovery and management. I think that by launching this policy framework and the implementation committee, we can all work together to correct the wrongs of corruption and give the state the money that has been taken by economic criminals.
Although he referred to the framework’s launch as historic, he also hinted that EOCO’s efforts are yielding considerable results and will be further improved with the introduction of new tactics for the recovery and management of stolen assets.
