Government has released a White Paper on the report of a Commission of Enquiry into matters relating to the participation of the Black Stars in the 2014 World Cup Tournament in Brazil.
Attorney General & Minister for Justice, Mrs. Marietta Brew Appiah-Oppong, told the Flagstaff House Press Corps on Thursday that Government accepted most of the recommendations of the Commission.
“Where Government has not accepted the Commission’s recommendations, this has been stated and the reasons for the non-acceptance given. Where Government has accepted the recommendations in modified form, this has also been stated and the reasons for the modification given.”
The next step after the issuance of the White Paper, she noted, is the implementation of the recommendations, which have been accepted, as well as those accepted with modifications.
According to Mrs. Appiah-Oppong, Government has accepted the recommendation of the Commission to assign implementation responsibilities in relation to payment of penalties, return of state property and surcharging of certain named personalities for losses caused, to the Ministry of Justice and Attorney-General’s Department.
Government also accepts the recommendation of the Commission that supporters must seek their own sponsorship to participate in tournaments and the state should, as a matter of policy, not directly employ public or state funds to airlift, accommodate and feed supporters.
Government accepts the recommendation that the activities of Fan Parks as produced and managed by E-volution International should be further investigated and any net income accruing from the execution of the Fan Parks should be paid to the state with interest at the prevailing bank rate.
