Speaker summons security minister over raids – Starr Fm

The Speaker of Parliament Prof. Mike Oquaye has summoned the National Security Minister Albert Kan Dapaah over raids at the residences of three Minority lawmakers.

Mr. Dapaah is expected in Parliament Monday, July 31, 2017.

Three former ministers whose homes were raided by some personnel of the Criminal Investigation Department of the Ghana Police Service will today meet the CID to assist in the ongoing probing of alleged financial malfeasance involving the Ameri power contract.

The ministers; former Power minister Kwabena Donkor, former deputy Power Minister John Jinapor and the former deputy Attorney General Dominic Ayine say they will honour the invitation despite objections from parliament.

The homes of the former Mahama appointees were raided in search of documents on the controversial power deal.

The 300MW emergency power contract was secured in 2015 by the John Mahama administration to fix severe power challenges at the time after it received Parliamentary approval.
