Minority Spokesperson on Foreign Affairs, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has accused government of causing financial loss to the state by funding the recent trips by some EOCO and Ghana Police officials to Dubai.

Last week, a government delegation headed by Deputy Attorney General, Joseph Kpemka were in UAE for deliberations on the possible extradition of NAM 1.

The Ghana Police Service and the Economic and Organised Crime Office, in a statement revealed that the CEO of the troubled gold trading firm, Menzgold, Nana Appiah Mensah, is currently facing misdemeanour charges in Dubai, after which he will be brought to Ghana if he’s cleared of all the charges leveled against him.

Speaking to the issue Mr Ablakwa who is also the Member of Parliament for North Tongu said: “full disclosure is very important when you have told the whole country that you have composed a delegation and that you are going to meet your counterpart in Dubai and you are going to use diplomacy to try to get NAM 1 back to Ghana. As we speak, so many days since they return, no briefing to the Ghanaian public, we do not know which officials we met there…Remember that this is a country where we have a full mission, we have an Ambassador, Alhaji Ahmed Ramadan, and if it was just going to take a statement from NAM 1; the mission could have done that.

What you have engaged in now, leading a high level government delegation and returning and not telling us if you met your counterpart in UAE can only amount to causing financial loss and wastage of the tax payers monies. Especially for a government that has said that they do not want to use the tax payer’s monies in compensating the victims of this Menzgold debacle, the government’s conduct leaves much to be desired. And we insist the people of Ghana need to know what really transpired in Dubai.”
