Betty Mould is hiding the truth

Mon, 23 Jul 2012 Source: Yawose, John

Matters concerning the CP judgement debts seem complicated

because of NDC Ministers’ and activists’ deliberate manoeuvrings and stage management. The

Real judgement debt awarded CP at the arbitration was $41m. At the advent of

NDC, CP claimed further for mobilization, demobilisation, Loss of profit etc for abrogation

of his Oda-Nkawkaw Road, Subi junction-New Abirem road, Kade-Oda road and

Yamoransa-Assin Praso road contracts by the Kufuor government amounting to over

€100m-which together with the $41m, Betty Mould negotiated to €94m and which

NDC/Mills paid.

The truth therefore is that CP was paid €94m – comprising $41m

for the arbitration for Takoradi, Obuasi town Roads and a remaining component from claims

for the Akim Oda, Assin Praso etc roads allegedly terminated.

Again, the truth is that the contracts for the Akim Oda, Assin

Praso, New Abirem roads were never terminated.

CP themselves rather abandoned or quit from the said projects

on their own free will. Even Ghana government could have sued CP for AWOL or

quitting the contracts. I wonder why this was never pursued by NPP and NDC. The

case with NPP can be pardoned since CP did not claim anything under them. All

of a sudden, NDC enters, and CP put out claims of over €100m for the contracts

they abandoned.

NDC/Mills /Betty Mould did a great disservice for entertaining

this phantom claims on the project on which there were no works. PAC must

request Betty Mould to show the letters which terminated the projects.

I hold that Betty Mould negotiated with CP on a false

premise that the contracts were terminated by NPP and the result was the fraudulent

payment above $41m (which was awarded by the foreign arbiters). And Betty Mould

impudently looks in the faces of unsuspecting Ghanaians to say we must rather

praise her for negotiating down from €153m to € 94m- the insolence of the dying

cockroach indeed. The rot, the stains the stench from the CP saga is nauseating.

Betty Mould is desperate. She is trying very hard, with Nana

Ato Dadzie, George Loh, Chris Ackumey and the others in the legal team to hide her

irresponsible acts from the public. And this fact is what Kan Dapaa-led PAC is desperately

trying hard to highlight. Â NDC took

advantage of the environment and exploited the opportunity to plunder the

Treasury thinking NPP will be held responsible for their irresponsibility.

 I remember Ben Kumbuor

, the present Attorney General who has lost all his moral worth, as far as I am

concerned, on account of his ‘manufacture of assassination’ story, also came to

PAC some weeks ago brandishing a so-called judgement debt report which

contained a CP award of $640m from the international Arbitrators. What do Mills/Betty

Mould /Ben Kumbuor take us for?

In pursuance of NDC/Mills manoeuvres, Betty Mould is presently,

clearly intimidating Kan Dappah and PAC with a view to pre-empt probing questions

at the public examinations on the CP brazen crime. Â Â Â Dear Readers, the tantrums and postures of

Betty Mould are diversionary tactics aimed at prolonging the issues beyond the parliamentary

sitting days until next October. The

point on Hon Asiama’s  ‘flawed’, ‘fraud’ issue,

Betty Mould is dragging is unwarranted and shameful. She is wasting everybody’s time. We

know Kan Dapaa and PAC are not small boys who will kowtow to Betty Mould and

Nana Ato Dadzie’s wicked and shameful psychological intimidations and wasteful

red herrings.

I charge that Betty Mould is hiding the truth otherwise; her

strange behaviour and refusal to answer simple questions from PAC are not

understandable. Betty Mould’s tricks have been overused by criminals since the

beginning of the world and she should discard them.

Again I call on Kan Dapaa to challenge Betty Mould to

produce the letters CP claimed terminated the Akim Oda and Assin Praso contracts

and because of which she accepted that there was a basis for negotiating on


Kan Dapaa -led PAC is fighting for the truth and justice. Well

meaning Ghanaians know PAC are doing their work decently and satisfactorily. Betty Mould should

stop her desperations. Betty Mould will be exposed for this gargantuan CP crime.
