The BNI is also investigating how some health facilities were certified to become service providers of the NHIA.

In addition to its investigations, the BNI is looking at how tariffs for providers are calculated, vetted and the components of the membership and financial management.

In view of the investigations, the Financial Intelligence Centre (FIC) applied for an ex-parte to the Financial and Economic court in Accra for an order to freeze Sylvester Mensah’s accounts.
The order according to the FIC was granted today.

“We are told that the order was granted today. The FIC was represented in court by Arthur Chambers. They made argument in support of why necessarily the accounts of Sylvester Mensah should be frozen,” he said.

On January 1, 2016, Sylvester Mensah reported himself to the BNI after a invitation was extended to him for questioning .
