The Office of the Special Prosecutor has frozen the assets of the late Chief Executive Officer of the Forestry Commission, Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, popularly known as Sir John.

This latest move is part of investigations into the acquisition of state lands that were contained in the will of the late CEO.
