The Member of Parliament (MP) for Bolgatanga Central, Isaac Adongo, has dragged the government to court over Ghana Amalgamated Trust (GAT) Limited.
Mynewsgh.com reports that Adongo described GAT as a complete scam being run by the government.
In a suit filed against the Attorney General, the Ghana Amalgamated Trust Limited and the National Trust Holding Company Limited as first, second and third defendants respectively, the MP, who is a member of the Finance Committee of parliament, is laying four claims.
Costs associated with the claim include legal fees charged by lawyers of the plaintiff in the case.
A month ago, Adongo reportedly described the Ghana Amalgamated Trust Limited as an outrageous waste of the tax payers’ money by the minister of finance, Ken Ofori-Atta.
In his opinion, the arrangement is dubious, and aimed at saddling the taxpayer with huge fiscal costs for no real value except to satisfy the minister.
