Accra, Nov. 21, GNA - The Office of Parliament said on Monday it was investigating allegations of drug trafficking against its member from Nkoranza North.

A statement from the Public Affairs Directorate of the Office of Parliament said the member, Mr Eric Amoateng, was given permission to attend to a personal business in the US from the November 9 to November 24 and the information regarding his alleged involvement in the drug trafficking scandal in New York was rather unfortunate.
