The Financial and Economic High Court presided over by Justice Afia Serwaa Asare Botwe, has charged Auditor-General, Daniel Yaw Domlevo with contempt.

This follows his failure to respond to a suit filed by the Senior Minister, Yaw Osafo-Maafo, which was challenging a US$1m surcharge on him.

The Auditor-General was required to respond to the petition by the Minister to pay back to the state some 1 million dollars paid to Kroll and Associates for its audit services rendered to the state.

Mr. Domelevo however told the court that he was busy finishing up an audit report for Parliament hence his failure to respond to the suit.

But the court, presided by Justice Botwe indicated that the Auditor General’s reason was “untenable and an afterthought.”

Below is the full judgement;
