In a news broadcast item on the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) culled by graphicgh.com as published below, accused Ghana government of syphoning Ghanaian tax payers money into private accounts abroad in large quantities over the few years of Akufo-Addo’s government, which violates the anit-money laundering laws of the European Union.
The British Authorities at the Heathrow have intercepted a cash amount of 26 million pounds sterling in suitcases being carried by a Key govt official in Nana Akufo-Addo’s govt into Britain.
The Serious Fraud Office (SFO) of Britain are currently investigating the suspected money laundering and have requested documents in respect of the money from Ghana government.
This is coming just within days when the Belgium European giant Bank – The ING Bank gave notice to Ghana Embassy in Belgium – that all its accounts with the bank will be closed over money laundering and other fraudulent activities.
One thing is clear – Akufo-Addo and members of his govt are syphoning tax payers money into private foreign accounts ahead of elections.
In a related development, the European Union has black listed Ghana over laundering issues.
