Three-member committee set up to investigate illegal sale of timber at Forest Service Division


A three-member committee has been set up by the Forestry Commission to probe alleged involvement of the Executive Director of the Forest Services Division of the Commission, Oppong Sasu in the consignment of illegal timber.

This comes after the Okyehene Mining Protection Unit impounded a truckload of illegal timber worth ¢400,000 at Akyem Nsutam in the Eastern Region.

Head of Corporate Affairs and Media Relations of the Forestry Commission, Joyce Ofori Kwafo said Mr Oppong Sasu has been asked to proceed on leave effective today, pending the outcome of the investigations.

She told GBC’s Nathaniel Nartey that the three-member committee has until February 1 to submit its report.
