Anas and his Tiger Eye Pi team has finally present a petition to the office of the Special Prosecutor to investigate the suspects who were caught taking bribes to facilitate illegal mining despite the government clamp down on the act.
Transcripts of the first part of the investigative piece christened ‘galamsey fraud’ uncovered massive scale of fraud perpetrated by some members of the Inter-Ministerial Committee against Illegal Mining.
In the documentary, Mr. Bissue is captured accepting money ostensibly to facilitate clearance for a mining company without going through due process.
He is heard in the video instructing his subordinates to fast-track the processing of the company’s documents.
Several others connected to the work of the committee, otherwise known as the Presidential Committee on Environment and Natural Resources, are seen in the video playing “facilitating” roles at negotiated fees.
A member of the legal team of Anas, Sammy Darko however revealed that they have presented all the necessary evidence the Tiger Eye PI team gathered in their latest investigative documentary titled Galamsey Fraud, to the Special Prosecutor.
“A complaint together with the rushes, transcripts, expired mining licence…permit with barcode to mine and receipt of the only statutory payment Tiger demanded to serve as proof that they dealt with the IMCIM were this morning presented to the Office of the Special Prosecutor,” Mr Darko said in a Facebook post.
The government of Ghana has said that it was going to request for the raw visuals from Anas to conduct its own investigations into allegations that some officials of the Inter-ministerial Committee on illegal mining had taken bribes to circumvent due process in their work.
“Government will have the said tapes properly investigated using the raw unedited footage and if any person is found to have solicited money or taken bribe to bend rules, the necessary actions will be taken,” Information Minister Kojo Oppong Nkrumah said at a press briefing on Thursday.
