The Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ), has acquitted the two deputy Chiefs of Staff of corruption allegations leveled against them by Kwame Asare Obeng, aka A-Plus, a musician and sympathizer of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).
The Dynamic Youth Movement of Ghana petitioned CHRAJ after the two senior government officials had been cleared in an investigation by the Criminal Investigations Department [CID], an outcome the group found questionable.
Abu Jinapor and Francis Asenso-Boakye were accused of interfering in the affairs of Ghana’s premier hospital, Korle Bu Teaching Hospital and piling pressure on the CEO Dr. Felix Anyah, to give back a revenue-collection contract to UniBank after the same contract had been canceled.
But CHRAJ in its findings which has been sighted by Kasapafmonline.com said it was “satisfied that the evidence does not support the allegations of corruption and abuse of power against Messrs A. Jinapor and Asenso Boakye… the allegations could not be substantiated whatsoever. “Accordingly, this complaint is hereby dismissed as being without merit and totally unwarranted,” the report concluded.
The Criminal Investigative Department of the Ghana Police Service which had earlier investigated the same matter, described as baseless and unsubstantiated allegations of thievery and corruption leveled against two Deputy Chiefs of Staff.
The Department thus cleared the two- Messers Abu Jinapor and Asenso-Boakye- of any wrongdoing.
A statement issued and signed by then Director General of the Police CID, Bright Oduro said after weeks of investigations it was evident the allegations by A Plus lack credibility.
