cid-director-general-maame-tiwaa-addo-danquah-has-denied-reports-that-sannie-dara-3-others-have-been-charged-for-money-launderingThe Director General of the Ghana Police CID, DCOP Maame Tiwaa Addo-Danquah has vivaciously denied wild allegations that Ghana FA Communications Director Ibrahim Sannie Dara and three other football officials have been charged for money laundering insisting none of them has been officially charged.
Growing reports in the media had crucified the former BBC award winning sports journalist and three others – Nii Komiete Doku, Leanear Afiyo Addy and Alhaji Lawal alleging that they were charged for money laundering.
DCOP Maame Tiwaa Addo-Danquah has, in an interview with Starr Sports, denied the growing media reports claiming formal charges have been filed against the four officials of the who were indicted in the #Number12 exposé by investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
Describing the charge claims as false, the CID boss clarified that the officials were invited to give her outfit their caution statements and informed they were being investigated for money laundering and visa racketeering.
“We haven’t charged anybody yet,” she noted before explaining that “when police invite somebody and the person is questioned, maybe it’s just a caution, you take a caution statement from the person.”
“To get to a point when somebody is charged is when you take the person to court so for now we have informed them.
“We have given them a warning that we are investigating these cases (money laundering and racketeering) and they are to assist us. So I don’t want you to use the word charge.
“We are investigating the whole GFA’s #Number12 saga. In the course of investigation, we try as much as possible to make sure we have all the necessary evidence we need before we come public on it and so it will be too premature to say that anybody has been charged,” she further told Starr Sports.
Meanwhile, Sannie Dara had earlier filed a $4.2m defamatory suit against Anas Armeyaw Anas and his team as well as another on infringement on his fundamental human rights.2018-07-06 18:41:09Archives
