Prosecutor General’s office has announced it will be reviewing the case involving corruption in procurement of 75 ventilators for COVID-19 patients, after Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) recommended to review the case for a second time in a press conference held yesterday.
In a statement released today, the Prosecutor General’s office said it will be reviewing the initial decision and re-examine the case following backlash from ACC and the public.
The statement went on to instruct ACC to present evidence related to the case, and to seek assistance from the police if further investigation is required.
Furthermore, it said this case is of great interest to the public but questioned if the case had enough evidence to press charges.
The Prosecutor General’s office reminded that the constitution grants it the power to press charges while the investigation processes fall on ACC.
