Trade Minister Alan Kyerematen has called on parliament to investigate the Minority Chief Whip, Muntaka Mubarak, for presenting a fake document as an exhibit before the 5-member ad-hoc committee that probed the controversial cash-for-seat scandal.
Mr Alan Kyerematen made the case while he addressed the Lawmakers after a 5-member ad hoc committee of Parliament investigating extortion allegations against the Ministry of Trade and Industry cleared him and his officials of any wrongdoing.
“If an Honourable Member submitted a document which has been proven to be fraudulent and this was submitted under oath, it may be a case that needs to be properly investigated. Mr. Speaker, it is also on record that during the session of Honorable Muntaka, he submitted evidence of a document that has been proven to be fraudulent because an invitation that was supposed to have been authored by the Deputy Minister for Trade and Industry now had photocopies on that back of that letter, a sponsorship package.”
“The recipients of this document have given evidence on oath that they received the sponsorship package separately from the letter of invitation.”
Meanwhile he said minority members that championed the setting up of a committee to probe the cash for seat allegations should be cited for causing financial loss to the state.
“It may be possible that the associated cost for recalling this may be a case of causing financial loss,” he made the submission before the House Tuesday.
