Members of the Majority on the Committee that probed the cash-for-seat saga are being very dishonest, Minority Chief Whip Muntaka Mubarak has said.

On Tuesday the Minority boycotted Parliament to avoid participating in the debate to approve the report of the ad hoc committee which investigated the claims of extortion against the Ministry of Trade and Industry.

They explained that “in the interest of transparency and accountability, this matter cannot be railroaded through Parliament”.

But despite a walk-out by the minority over the debate of the report, the House considered the report and cleared the Ministry of Trade and the event organizers of wrongdoing.

Minority Chief Whip, Muntaka Mubarak believes the Majority members are behaving overly “emotional” and are trying to cover up the Trade Minister, Alan Kyerematen.

He accused the Majority of being dishonest, insisting they have shown from the start that they are disinterested in properly probing the allegations of extortion leveled against the Trade Ministry.

“They [majority] are always acting with emotions… Even if you want to cover up, cover up neatly. On what basis will you refer a committee’s report to the privileges committee?,” he said on the Citi Breakfast Show.

“They have started from day 1 with the mindset that they were not interested in what was going to happen. You can see clearly in the way they were asking the question when we appeared before theM.

" When they did all these, you just have these tons of pages of witnesses’ verbatim extracts, you go into a committee and you don’t allow the clerk of the committee who has brought you summaries of the hearing through which you are supposed to do the draft report, the chairman of the committee vanishes and appears with a draft report to present…. That is why I think the majority was very dishonest in their dealings.”

Meanwhile, Trade Minister, Alan Kyerematen, believes the Minority has caused financial loss to the state by championing a recall of parliament, despite not having any evidence to indict him and his Ministry.
