The Co-Chair of the Citizen Movement Against Corruption has pushed for further investigations to unravel circumstances under which dismissed Public Procurement Authority (PPA) Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Adjenim Boateng Adjei, allegedly withdrew all funds from his frozen bank accounts.
Edem Senanu says so far as AB Adjei’s legitimate income stream did not support the unexplained wealth in his account, the state must probe the alleged withdrawal of funds to determine whether the money he took is for the country.
In an interview with JoyNews on Wednesday, he blamed state actors for negligence, especially when the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) revealed the former PPA Boss could not provide any justification for his wealth.
“Once there was the intention that these sums should be held on to because CHRAJ had indicated that he was not able to provide a justification for these amounts that got into his account; in other words, once you could not show that your income streams allowed you to have this as legitimately acquired sums of money, the state was supposed to have this money kept.
“…once the prosecution is done and we can prove that he was not entitled to it, then it’s money for the state,” Mr Senanu explained.
