This comes on the back of the arrest of owners of five (5) companies which presented forged documents to register their businesses.

A statement issued by GIPC on December 20, 2017, said the cases involve falsification of Registrar General’s documents and forgery of GIPC Certificates as well as forged Bank of Ghana foreign equity confirmation letters.

“The forgery of Registrar General’s Department documents and GIPC Certificates involves two (2) companies, one is currently being prosecuted by the GIPC in Court while the second company is being investigated by the Police.”

The statement said in the case of submission of forged Bank of Ghana equity confirmation letters, the three companies involved mentioned in their caution statements to the Police that a member of staff of the GIPC assisted them in preparing the documents.
