Anas Aremeyaw Anas, an investigative journalist, has petitioned the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) to probe Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta.
The CHRAJ Commissioner Joseph Whittal has confirmed receiving an official complaint from the Tiger Eye PI run by the ace investigative journalist.
The complaint, according to sources, is about a conflict of interest involving Ken Ofori-Atta and Former Minister of State, Charles Adu Boahen.
Anas Aremeyaw Anas recently released a new documentary ‘Galamsey Economy’ which he originally filmed in 2018.
In the said documentary, former Minister of State at the Finance Ministry, Charles Adu Boahen is said to have told the undercover investigators that the Vice President needed $200,000 as an appearance fee before meeting with supposed investors.
The Minister is also reported to have said that the Vice President would demand some contracts from any investor for his siblings to get his backing and influence in establishing a business in Ghana.
“You mean, like appearance fees and stuff? I mean he, himself (the Vice President), if you give him some (USD) 200,000 or something as a token, as thank you, appreciation, that’s fine.
“He’s not really, he’s not really (like) that. All he needs is to worry about his campaign money in 2020,” Charles Adu Boahen is alleged to have said.
