EOCO must drop Woyome probe - Azeem

The Executive Director of the Ghana Integrity Initiative, Vitus Azeem, is asking President John Evans Atta Mills to call off the Economic and Organised Crimes Office’s investigation into the Alfred Woyome judgment debt saga.

The Commission of Human Rights and Administrative Justice has also begun probing the same matter.

Speaking to Citi News, Mr. Azeem said the EOCO’s withdrawal will avoid a possible duplication of efforts.

“There is likely to be some complications if the two [EOCO and CHRAJ] do not coordinate with regards to the investigations,” he said.

He added that “the best approach to avoid possible clashes and duplication of efforts is for the President to say that now that CHRAJ has started investigations why you [EOCO] don’t drop it? ”
