Mrs. Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Dankwa, Executive Director of the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO), has stated that her office is working to recover misappropriated funds identified in the Auditor General’s report.
She said that EOCO is mandated to investigate and, where possible, recover funds reported missing by the Auditor General.
She was speaking at the office of the Savannah regional coordinating council as part of her working visit to the region.
“When you look at the Auditor General’s report, every year when it comes out, we don’t let it go like that. We take it district by district, item by item, and we look at how we can recover some of the issues raised in the Auditor General’s report.”
She also stated that EOCO investigates and prosecutes people identified by the Auditor General as having committed crimes on behalf of the Attorney General.
“Where we need to investigate further, we will. Those we can recover for government, we will. These are ways we can work together for our mutual benefit.”
ccording to witnesses, the driver was on his way to his Urvan bus when the incident occurred.
