Chairman of the Public Accounts Committee of Parliament, James Klutse Avedzi has stated that Government agencies who owe the state would be charged interest on the monies owed.

According to him, even if such debts have already been paid, interest would still be charged covering the period such monies were owed.

He noted that the move is to serve as deterrent to other offending public officers who take the country for granted.

The Ketu South lawmaker who is also the deputy Minority leader in Parliament believes that it is about time Public servants who misapply state funds are made to suffer the consequences of their actions.

His call came in the wake of several infractions raised in the Auditor General’s report against public office holders who misapplied state funds without due regards to basic financial management practices.
