Hon. Joe Ghartey, MP for Esikado and former AG
The Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service is likely to pick another Member of Parliament over the infamous Alfred Woyome judgment debt scandal, Citi News sources reveal.
The New Patriotic Party (NPP) legislator for the Aburi-Nsawam constituency, Hon. O. B Amoah was arrested and charged with causing financial loss to the state over the weekend. He was subsequently released on GhC 20 million police inquiry bail.
Another NPP MP for Essikado-Ketan, Hon. Joe Ghartey, is suspected to be next on the wanted list of past government officials.
But the former Attorney General and Minister for Justice during the erstwhile Kufuor administration told Citi News he is not afraid of any arrest.
“I am not afraid in the least and I am not nervous in the least; I am going about my business normally because I have nothing to hide,” Hon. Ghartey said.
He maintained, “Woyome, I have never met him before, I have never had any transaction with him, I never even came across him when I was Attorney General and even after I left office and so I don’t know how I can be connected to his judgment debt payment saga. ”
He said: “As far as Waterville is concerned, the company has dubbed the nation. ”
