The British High Commission in Accra together with the Crown Prosecution Service Criminal Justice Advisor has organised a three week internship programme in London for a lawyer from the Attorney General’s office and an investigator from the Economic and Organised Crime Agency, formerly SFO.
Marina Appiah Opare and Seidu Adams spent the first two weeks getting a better appreciation of the Crown Prosecution Service particularly on how to deal with organised crime, prosecution and Mutual legal Assistance.
The third week was spent in the offices of the Metropolitan Police. The British High Commission’s Police Liaison Officer in Accra, Keith Ashong mentored them throughout the week to ensure they had maximum exposure and understanding of International Legal Mutual Assistance and Proceeds of Crime at a tactical level.
