Don't force govt to prosecute indicted GYEEDA officials - Group

Civil Society Group, Centre for Policy Research has stated that Ghanaians must not railroad the Government into prosecuting people indicted in the GYEEDA rot without resorting to the rules of natural justice.

The Government recently cancelled its contracts with some private organisations in connection with GYEEDA.

They are to refund about 55 million Ghana cedis to the state.

But some critics including the biggest opposition party say the Government must go beyond just cancelling the illegally awarded contracts and punish those involved.

However, Samuel Salga a Research Fellow with the Centre for Policy Research in an interview with XYZ News said the critics must be patient.

He said if “we take people to court based on this report alone, the case is likely to be thrown out of court and the same would come back and say we didn’t do a good work”.
