Government has requested for the raw and unedited video of the latest ‘Galamsey Fraud’ expose by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas to help in investigations.
Addressing the press today [Thursday], Information Minister Kojo Oppong Nkrumah said
the government has taken notice of the documentary and welcomes any effort that assists the fight against galamsey.
“Government will have the said tapes properly investigated using the raw unedited footage and if any persons are found to have solicited monies or taken bribes to bend rules the necessary action will be taken”.
In answering a question on the timelines for the probe, he said: “We will not give timelines, the point we want to make clearly is that there is a documentary out there, there are some raw footage that serves as the basis to it. It’s of interest to the state and we will examine it. Work proceeds until we are told otherwise by our principals. So the work proceeds, if in the process of the fight there is information out there that somebody has compromised the fight, it is important to have access to it and to examine and then to take necessary actions.’’
