Mr. Adu Kyei, Deputy Commissioner of Customs, Must Be Interdicted now.

Lawyer and KPMG Professor in Accounting at the Fisher School of Accounting, University of Florida Stephen Kwaku Asare widely known as Kwaku Azar has commented that the Deputy Commissioner of Customs must be interdicted now.

According to report, Mr. Adu Kyei’s decision to render an advance ruling to the applicants by reducing the values of their intended imports between a range of 5% – 10% below the benchmark values was wrongful and unsupported by the requirements of the law for the issuance of customs advance ruling. Mr. Adu Kyei wilfully put aside the law by embarking on his own predilections.

Background

The Special Prosecutor, Kissi Agyebeng, has cited a member of the Council of State, Ms. Eunice Jacqueline Buah Asomah-Hinneh, and some officials of the Ghana Revenue Authority in an act of corruption that resulted in the loss of revenue to the state.

“The OSP finds, that Mr. Adu Kyei’s decision to issue customs advance ruling to the applicants, resulted in a short collection of or shortfall in revenue in the amount of One Million Seventy-Four Thousand cedis Six Hundred and Twenty- Seven cedis Fifteeen pesewas (GHC1,074,627.15) from a total of five hundred and thirty-one (531) declarations in respect of Labianca.

Therefore, it lies ill in Mr. Adu Kyei’s mouth to claim that he saved the Republic financial loss by his conduct; and his claimed bases for his decision are unsupportable afterthought,” the report said.

Prof Azar believe that, he must be Interdicted for causing financial lost to the state.
