Accra, April 29, GNA - Three persons who were

arrested in connection with the leakage of this year's Basic

Education Certificate Examination (BECE) Mathematics Paper 2 at

Fadama in Accra have been put before a Circuit Court.

The three are Wisdom Kokroko, a retired teacher, Bukari

Musah and Donabel Gabada, teachers of King and Queens

International School, Abeka Lapaz in Accra.
Kokroko and Musah are being held on a charge of illegal

possession, knowledge or use of examination questions while

Gabada is being charged for leakage of examination papers.

The court, presided over by Mr. D.E.K. Daketsey did

not take their pleas and remanded them into police custody pending

further investigations.
Chief Inspector J.K. Anim, the prosecutor, told the court

that, last week the complainant had information that WAEC

question papers had been tampered with at the Cluster of Schools at

Fadama.
The prosecution said Mr Frederick Selby, Director of

Legal Services West Africa Examination Council (WAEC), went to

the Supervisor of the cluster of schools and demanded the sealed

question papers. However, he found that the Mathematics Paper 2

had been opened before the commencement of the exam.

The prosecution said when the question papers were

counted and it was revealed that three out of the 50 question papers

were missing.
The prosecution said Mr Selby saw Gabada teaching the

candidates of Queens and Kings School with a photocopy of the

Mathematics Paper 2 which the candidates were to write in the

afternoon.
When Mr Selby asked Gabada where he got the

questions from he mentioned Musah as the one who gave them to

him.
