A group of Gold Coast Fund Management customers have issued an unqualified apology to the Executive Director of Economic and Organized Crimes Office (EOCO) for impugning his reputation in a press statement.

The 12,000 customers in the statement raising issues over the GCFM to pay them their investments, accused the EOCO Boss of KK Amoah of allowing himself to be compromised by the managers of the Fund.

The group in the stated “after several weeks of patiently waiting for EOCO to act we are beginning to suspect that EOCO Boss Mr. K.K. Amoah may have been compromised hence his inaction on such a serious matter.”

Speaking to host of the Gold Evening News Sena Nombo on Friday December 21, 2018, one of the signatories to the press release Mr. D. Amporful said their allegation was misinformed.

According to him a meeting with Mr. KK Amoah has revealed that EOCO has actually been acting on the November 14, 2018 including interrogating the Managing Director of GCFM Kwame Ofori Asomaning and extending invitations to other persons.

Mr. Amporful said the allegation against Mr. Amoah was based on suspicion and a lack of information on the actions being taken on their petition.

He has therefore apologized to the EOCO Boss on behalf of the group and withdrawn the allegation against Mr. K.K. Amoah.

“We have no evidence against EOCO or Mr. K.K. Amoah concerning the alleged suspicion of compromise.”

“We fully apologize to Mr. Amoah for any injury to his person or character,” a new statement stressed.
