The Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu, has revealed that the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) understated the amounts of monies in the bank accounts of sacked Public Procurement Authority (PPA) Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Adjenim Boateng Adjei.
According to the Special Prosecutor in an update on the referral of allegations of corruption against the dismissed PPA boss, CHRAJ ought to be commended for their report.
However, he said, “the only problem with the CHRAJ report is that for some reason, it understates the amounts disclosed by the bank statements from the three banks accounts of Mr Adjei exhaustively reviewed by the Auditor General for this Office.”
Earlier this month, it would be recalled, CHRAJ reported that sacked Public Procurement Authority had been unable to explain the source of large volumes of wealth moving through his various bank accounts.
CHRAJ analyzed data provided by the Financial Intelligence Centre which puts the total transactions during the period within which Mr Adjei assumed office at GHS 14.8 million.
The above amount is the total figure from 4 Dollar and Euro accounts held at two banks.
But the Special Prosecutor said the amount stated was small.
It said total cedis amount was Ghc 15,691,559.30; USD $4,467,655.00 and Euros 54,500.
Mr Adjei was sacked by President Akufo-Addo recently over the “contracts for sale” Investigation by Manessah Awuni, an investigative journalist.
