Anybody can be arrested without a warrant ~ OSP

The Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) has said it does not need a warrant to arrest a suspect.

“The general public is advised that, in the exercise of its police powers, the Office of the Special Prosecutor can arrest without a warrant, any person it reasonably suspects of having committed corruption or corruption-related offences”, the office said on Twitter shortly after a Human Rights Court presided over by Justice Nicholas Abodakpi, issued an interim injunction restraining the Office of the Special Prosecutor or its agents from executing an alleged arrest warrant against Mr Charles Bissue in connection with corruption-related offences.

The court issued the order on Thursday, 15 June 2023 to stop the OSP from arresting the former secretary to the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining (IMCIM).

Mr Bissue was recently declared a wanted man by the OSP after he failed to honour an invitation.

The 10-day interim injunction was granted by the court following an application by Mr Bissue’s lawyers.
