- The auditor general’s department has hinted of massive economic negligence at the judicial service
- A 2015 report indicated that the service failed to retrieve some 2 billion cedis worth of revenue
The judicial service in 2015 was not able to reconcile revenue collected totaling GH¢ 2,969,409.39 due to operational lapses, the auditor general has revealed.
According to the auditor general, the judicial service ‘ consistently failed to obtain bank statements from HFC bank, as a result it was unable to reconcile revenue totaling and deposits amounting to GH¢ 2,846,435.82 and £75,000.00”.
This revelation by the auditor general is expected to strike tensions in the service as possibilities of a massive economic investigation into what exactly caused the loss of such amount looms.
So far, officials of the judicial service are yet to react to this disturbing development as public officials which headed the service under the auspices of the erstwhile Mahama administration are all liable to subsequent investigations.
