As guardians of justice and keepers of the rule of law with the desire to prosecute cases fairly and to expand knowledge in evolving nature of crimes in the 21st century, the Office of the Attorney – General and Ministry of Justice organised an annual capacity building workshop for prosecuting State Attorneys and selected prosecutors from the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) and the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO).

The 5-day capacity building workshop facilitated by internationally renowned experts with diverse knowledge, was held in the Rock City Hotel, Kwahu in the Eastern Region from 25th – 29th September 2023.

The workshop was aimed to sensitize the nation’s prosecutors and to set the path for them to comply with the highest international standards prescribed by the International Association of Prosecutors in conformance with the UN Guidelines on the Role of Prosecutors.

The training was attended by over 130 prosecuting Attorneys across Ghana comprising all Attorneys with the mandate to prosecute cases including often challenging cases on behalf of the Republic.

The workshop provided an opportunity to build the capacity of Attorneys .Again Attorneys had the chance to network with fellow prosecutors from OSP and EOCO.

It is expected that the training workshop would ensure that prosecutors acquire the skills required for the accomplishment of their functions and for the proper performance of their role in combating criminality, particularly in its new forms and dimensions and thus contributing to fair and equitable criminal justice and the effective protection of citizens against crime.
