The Chairman of the Public Accounts Committee, James Klutse Avedzi, has referred management of the Ghana Maritime Authority to the Attorney General for prosecution.

This comes after the indictment of the authority by the Auditor General in the 2020 report over about 7 different procurement breaches.

Appearing before the committee in the company of Transport Minister Kwaku Ofori Asiamah, the management of the authority was not asked for explanation but straight away referred to the Attorney General’s office for sanctions as recommended by the auditors.
