“Don’t Politicize Burglary At My Ministry” – Barimah

Listen to article

The Minister of Employment and Manpower Development, Mr Yaw Barimah has asked the public to give a political slant to the theft case in his office last Thursday, 20th May 20004.

According to the Minister, the case is a criminal one which has been reported to the police for further investigations.

Speaking to Peace FM today, May 24, Mr Barimah hoped that the perpetrators of the crime would be uncovered and would subsequently be made to face the law. The Minister stated that, in the theft case, two computers and their central processing unit (CPU) which both belong to his private secretary were taken away by the thieves.

Mr Yaw Barimah said equipment contain recent vital information on labour. The theft of the computers at the Ministry has however been linked to a ploy by security personnel to hide some files containing vital documents that may exonerate former Employment and Social Welfare Minister, Alhaji Mohammed Mumuni, from allegations of money laundering and fraud made by Messrs Bafour Awuah and Associates.

National security agents are being accused of acting on orders from above. Reacting to these, the Minister said the documents the former Minister was asking for, are still available at the Ministry and not part of the records stored in the CPU stolen.

He said he suspects an insider who has access to the building, may be behind the theft
