A recommendation by the Justice Senyo Dzamefe Commission that probed Ghana’s participation at the Brazil 2014 World Cup, to set up a special Investigative team to further inquire into happenings at the soccer showpiece has been rejected by government.

Instead, it prefers using the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI), to conduct any further investigations recommended by the commission.

“Government does not accept the recommendation that a Special Investigative Team be set up to look into the matters that require further investigations. Government is of the view that there does exist institutions which have the requisite capacity to deal with these matters. Government has, therefore, decided that the Bureau of National Investigations will be the body to conduct any further investigations assigned to the Special Investigative Team.”

On Monday, March 30, 2015, President John Dramani Mahama received the report of the Presidential Commission of Inquiry chaired by Justice Senyo Dzamefe which investigated matters relating to the participation of the Black Stars at the 2014 World football tournament in Brazil.

The report was subsequently referred to the Attorney-General and Minister of Justice for advice.

A Government White Paper has accordingly been issued. SEE WHITE PAPER HERE
