25 individuals have paid back embezzled funds, AG says


The Auditor-General, Daniel Domelevo, has disclosed that about 25 individuals who embezzled states funds have paid such monies back to state coffers even before his office could enforce the judgement of the Supreme Court on the matter.

It would be recalled that the apex court, had on Wednesday, delivered judgement in a case brought before it by OccupyGhana, directing the AG to surcharge such individuals believed to have embezzled state funds.

According to Mr. Domelevo, he is committed to enforcing the Court’s directive to the letter, and warned against interference as he sets out to retrieve monies from persons cited to have misappropriated state funds.

“More than a month ago, we identified about 25 individuals we were going to call on, but when we went to the Public Accounts Committee to find out the current status, all of them have paid the money,” he said.

The Auditor-General also disclosed that he has started gathering the needed evidence to reinforce his powers of disallowance and surcharge, adding that he has to meticulously build a file which has evidence for each of the cases before proceeding.

“If I surcharge you and you don’t agree with me and we go to court, I cannot just pull out just my report to say this is the evidence to your embezzlement. I must show documents that you signed this and that vouchers for this payment, showing the invoice number and all.

“It’s continuous progress. As we go, if we identify those who have not paid the money or have not been able to provide documentary evidence to acquit the expenditure, that is the person we will surcharge,” he said.
