Mr. Kwaku Duah, Chief Executive Officer of the Centre, in a letter dated 11 June 2018, to the banks stated: “Pursuant to Section 28 of the Anti-Money Laundering Act, 2008 (Act 749), as amended, kindly furnish us with the following information on subjects and any other connected accounts:
The FIC, which was established to protect the economy and safeguard Ghana’s financial integrity, suspects Mr Nyantakyi may have engaged in money laundering in the wake of the undercover work done by ace investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas that uncovered rot within the GFA.
