Asomah-Hinneh captured national attention after the Special Prosecutor accused Labianca Company Ltd. of benefitting from reduced tax liabilities due to her influence-peddling.

Details of the accusations against her

In August 2022, the Special Prosecutor published a report on underhand dealings at the ports, claiming Labianca Company Ltd, a frozen foods company, had evaded import duties totalling GH¢1.074 million.

The report explained that the amount constituted a shortfall in import duties paid to the state. The Special Prosecutor added that the tax evasion resulted from influence-peddling by Asomah-Hinneh.

According to the report, she used her position as a member of the Council of State and the Board of Directors of the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority to secure reduced tax liabilities from the Customs Division.

Labianca Company Ltd denied the allegations at the time.
