Inusah Fuseini, fmr SC judge, other Ghanaian politicians named in incriminating ownership of Dubai estates – Report

Inusah Abdulai Bistav Fuseini, a former Minister of Lands and Natural Resources, has been cited in a report by the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) on ‘politically exposed persons’ who own properties in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates.

According to the report, which was titled “How Dirty Money Finds a Home in Dubai Real Estate,” and published on May 14, 2024, it looked into how criminals and politicians stash their wealth in Dubai by investing in properties.

It indicated that because the city is known for its financial secrecy, it has become a haven for criminals and politicians to invest their funds in.

“Dubai’s reputation for financial secrecy, its lack of property taxes, and relative political stability have also made the city an appealing spot for those looking to safely park funds abroad should the political tides turn against them at home,” part of the report reads.

Inusah Fuseini was named among politicians from across the world who own properties in Dubai, including the former Nigerian presidential candidate, Abubakar Atiku.

A profile of the former minister, which had his picture and bore the name “Inusah Abdulai Bistav Fuseini,” reads as follows: “Former member of Ghana’s parliament who has also held several ministerial roles, including Minister of Roads and Minister for Land and Natural Resources.”

A map attached to the profile linked the minister to six properties in Dubai.

About three other Ghanaians were named in the report, including Anthony Alfred Benin, a former judge on the Supreme Court of Ghana and the ECOWAS (Economic Community of West African States) Court of Justice, who had one property in Dubai linked to him.

Joseph Kwaku Asamoah, a former finance director of the Electoral Commission of Ghana, also confirmed to OCCRP that he was registered as the co-owner of two Dubai properties.

Asamoah, however, indicated that “he had not paid for them and that they were acquired by another person.”

Moses Aduko Asaga, a former member of Ghana’s parliament and former chief executive of the National Petroleum Authority of Ghana, was also captured in the report with one Dubai property being linked to him.
