A civil society group, Center for Public Interest Law (CEPIL) is advocating for agencies in charge of mining activities to be given the power to prosecute offenders of mining laws in Ghana.

According to CEPIL, such powers were taken from the sector agencies when a new law – Minerals and Mining Act 2006 (703) was enacted to repeal a previous law introduced under the PNDC regime.

While speaking at a forum organized by WACAM in collaboration with Citi FM and Tropenbos Ghana, the Executive Director of CEPIL, Augustine Niber also called for the review of mining laws to eliminate the conflicting roles of sector agencies.

There are a number of Ministries and government agencies currently supervising activities that border on the environment in Ghana.
