Sept 5: Awake Investigates releases its explosive investigative report

Awake Investigates will on Wednesday, September 5, 2018 release one of the two explosive investigative reports on public and private sector stealing and corruption.

The report which was a product of nearly a year’s painstaking investigations will uncover how private players conspired, colluded and collaborated with public servants to allegedly bribe, steal and defraud the state of huge sums of money.

Investigative Journalist and Head of Awake Investigates, Korsi Senyo who led the investigations said the report which will be released in series starting from Wednesday, September 5, 2018 dubbed “In Search Of The Lost Treasures” uncovers how some public official allegedly conspired with private persons to sell a multi-million dollar property of a dormant company in questionable circumstances and shared the money among themselves in 2011.

In the report, Korsi Senyo and his team uncovered how the officials allegedly forged documents in support of their alleged fraudulent deals and obtained approval of the judicial system for those transactions which could best be described as fake.

“The investigations revealed that some large amounts of revenue which should have gone to state coffers appear to have been diverted into private pockets. They deliberately authored fake documents to make the transaction appear as though it was their private commercial activity,” said Korsi Senyo.

The report also reveals how these public officials allegedly breached statutory laws in their conducts as public officials and ignored simple due diligence that helped some private individuals to allegedly perpetuate a high level of fraud under their supervision.

Korsi Senyo was the petitioner in the case of the two Deputy Chairpersons of the Electoral Commissioners, Ms. Goergina Opoku Amankwa and Mr. Amudu Sulley who have been impeached for incompetence and misconduct. He is also the individual who is challenging the General Legal Council at the Supreme Court where he filed about five writs.

He has hinted that the Awake Investigates team will file a formal petition with the Director-General, Criminal International Department of the Ghana Police Service, the Economic and Organized Crime Office, the Office of Special Prosecutor to immediately arrest and prosecute all the public and private sector officials implicated in the report.

Awake Investigates is a flagship initiative of Awake News, to uncover every hidden act of wrongdoing by public offers and private sector collaborators, and pursue their successful prosecution in the courts of law.

The team of crack investigators has sworn not to rest until every rot is exposed and every perpetrator named, shamed, made to refund every stolen money, and jailed without fear or favour.
