The Senior Minister, Yaw Osafo Maafo and four officials from the Ministry of Finance have initiated a court action against the Auditor General, Daniel Domelevo to clear their names in relation to what is said to be breaches of the Public Procurement Act (PPA) that resulted in their payment of US$1 million to a private firm, Kroll and Associates.

The Auditor-General has concluded that Kroll was paid for no work done, following what he said was the persistent failure of the Senior Minister to provide proof of actual work done.

The Auditor-General has consequently recommended disallowance of the payment of the one million dollars to Kroll and Associates, which government, through the Ministry of Finance paid.

Mr Domelevo has also surcharged the Senior Minister and the four officials from the Ministry of Finance.

In a statement issued by Mr Osafo Maafo, he however, argued that evidence available shows clearly that the Auditor General erred in law and professional procedures in the exercise of his powers regarding his audit on payments to Kroll and Associates.

He is, therefore, hoping to use the legal action to clear his name and those of the four officials.
