The embattled deputy chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC), Mrs Georgina Opoku Amankwah, has been cleared of any wrong doing by the Economic and Orgnaised Crime Office (EOCO), over the alleged disappearance of GHc480, 000 from the Commission’s Endowment Fund, her lawyer has said.

Kwabena Asante Krobea, whose client was asked to proceed on leave for investigation to commence into the endowment fund saga, accused EOCO of foul play.

He also questioned why his client has still not been recalled from leave, while the EC boss, Mrs Charlotte Osei, who has also been accused of corruption and incompetence by some concerned workers of EC, is still at post.

"If EOCO is saying that a complaint of the usage of the endowment has been levelled against our client and for that matter, she had to proceed on leave, then, for the same Chairperson [Charlotte Osei] that made that complaint, similar allegations have been made against her by staff of the commission, but rather, she at the moment, is at post working whilst our client is at home,” Mr. Asante Krobea said in an interview with Citi FM.

He continued, “The [EOCO] investigation has been concluded and as we expected, nothing untoward or no other charges have been made against our client because we knew our client was going to come out unscathed.”

He also threatened that they will sue EOCO if the outcome of the probe is not made public, demanding that Mrs Amankwah be recalled from leave.

"If in the pursuit of their function, we think that they are not acting fairly, we can invoke the requisite reliefs to seek redress for our client and very soon, if we do not hear from EOCO, they will hear from us,” he warned.
