Chairman of the Public Account Committee (PAC), Dr. James Klutse Avedzi has hinted at the ongoing public hearing in the Volta Region that persons cited for various financial infractions in the 2017 Auditor General’s report will be handed over to the police immediately.

He further revealed that there will be police presence at the public hearing of the 2017 Auditor General’s report.

This came to light after an accountant with Asuom Senior High School (SHS) in the Eastern Region, Emmanuel Ayernor sought to find out why public officials are still hauled before the committee even after satisfying demands of auditors, then the chairman of PAC made the revelation of police presence.

“For the 2017 report if you don’t respond to those issues within the 30 days after the exit conference, you will provide those information to the Auditor General, they will not clear you, they will surcharge you. So when you come we will ask if you have paid the surcharge. If you do no police,” he stated.
