The problem with the Ghanaians society is the increasing filth of corruption and scam–one of many which a letter from UK High Commissioner-Jon Benjamin to parliament has brought to light.
Instead of every right-thinking Ghanaian, especially those in authority condemning the actions of the 4 parliamentarians said to have violated UK visa rules, the First Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Mr. Joseph Osei Owusu has rather slammed the UK High Commissioner over his decision to expose four Ghanaian MPs for alleged visa fraud.
“I think that the High Commissioner in so many instances has acted in a way that in my view transcends the bounds of decency and propriety,” Mr Osei Owusu told Starr FM on Wednesday.
Mr Joe Osei Owusu also said it’s unnecessary for parliament to probe the case of the four MPs accused of the alleged visa fraud by the UK High Commission–sort of saying, and so what…
As we reported yesterday, three sitting MP’s and one former lawmaker have been cited by British authorities for being involved in cases of visa fraud.
The MP’s are alleged to have used their diplomatic statuses to acquire visas for people who entered the UK and never returned upon the expiration of their visas.
The allegations are contained in a letter written by the British High Commissioner to Ghana, Jon Benjamin, and addressed to Speaker of Parliament Mike Ocquaye, outlining the concerns of the British government.
The MP’s alleged to have engaged in the fraudulent acts are – Richard Acheampong, MP for Bia East in the Western Region, Joseph Benhazin Dahah, MP for Asutifi North in the Bono Ahafo region, Johnson Kwaku Adu, MP for Ahafo Ano South West, in the Ashanti Region and George Boakye, former MP for Asunafo South in the Bono Ahafo region.
