Bissue was detained around 11:45 GMT, according to a statement from the OSP, and then he was questioned by staff members of the Office. He was given bail and released after the interview.

The former secretary of the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining was previously designated sought by the OSP.

The action was taken a few days after the Office of the Special Prosecutor obtained a court order authorizing the detention of Bissue.

According to media reports, Bissue wasn’t prepared to turn himself in to the OSP.

However, the OSP asserted that it could make arrests without a warrant of people it had grounds to believe had engaged in corruption or offenses related to it.

The warning was delivered after Charles Bissue’s attorneys successfully obtained an ex-parte (without notification to the other party) order from the Human Rights Court, presided over by Justice Nicholas Abodakpi, prohibiting the OSP from detaining the former presidential staffer.
