The Case docket on the Social Security and National Insurance Trust’s (SSNIT’s) $72 million software scandal is not yet ready to be submitted to the Attorney General (AG), the Economic and Organized Crime Office (EOCO) has indicated.
This is contrary to EOCO’s earlier promise that the docket was going to be ready within two weeks.
EOCO had told DAILY GUIDE on September 7, 2017 that the case docket was going to be ready for submission to the AG in two weeks’ time, effective the date stated above.
However, in a follow-up by the paper on Tuesday, October 17, with regards to the progress on the work done so far by the investigative body, the Executive Director, ACP K.K. Amoah, said the docket was not yet ready to be presented to the AG for advice.
The SSNIT scandal is one of the high-profile reported ‘fraud’ cases being investigated by EOCO.
Some National Democratic Congress (NDC) bigwigs, including the party’s 2020 presidential hopeful, Prof. Joshua Alabi and SSNIT’s former Director General, Ernest Thompson, are among those who allegedly perpetrated the fraud against the state.
But Mr. Amoah after a ‘long silence’ on the progress of work done so far, told DAILY GUIDE that there was still “a high degree of auditing” to be done as far as the case is concerned.
He however, failed to go into details about what is involved in the so-called “high degree of auditing.”
