Gov’t under pressure to implement Subah report

Anti-graft Agency, the Ghana Integrity Initiative (GII) says government must ensure it implements all recommendations made by the Technical Committee which investigated the payment of GHC 75 million to Subah Infosolutions by the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA).

Though details of the report are sketchy, but Citi News is reliably informed that the Chief Director of the Finance Ministry has received the report.

The GRA charged with the responsibility of collecting taxes on behalf of the state, was alleged to have paid within three years almost GHC 144 million to SUBAH Infosolutions for no work done.

GRA is alleged to have paid on average GHC 4 million a month to the company. Subah Info Solutions was contracted by the Ghana Revenue Authority to electronically monitor the Communication Service Tax collected by the GRA.

Speaking to Citi News, Executive Director of the GII, Vitus Azeem said the culprits should not only be made to refund that money but be prosecuted as well.
