Attorney-General Awaits Investigation Docket on Akonta Mining’s Alleged Illegal Mining Activities

Godfred Yeboah Dame, the Attorney-General and Minister for Justice, has revealed that he is yet to be officially served with a docket regarding the ongoing investigations into the alleged illegal mining activities of Akonta Mining. This mining entity is reported to be owned by Bernard Antwi Boasiako, the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), commonly known as Chairman Wontumi.

Despite the absence of the investigation docket, the Attorney-General affirmed his commitment to prosecuting individuals involved in illegal mining activities. He cited instances where his office has successfully prosecuted and secured imprisonment for several Chinese nationals engaged in such activities.

Responding to allegations that his office has not taken action against Akonta Mining, which was captured on video allegedly mining in a forest reserve, the Attorney-General stated that no evidence of wrongdoing in the alleged illegal mining activities has been presented to his office.

He addressed concerns about not having seen the video, emphasizing that it would be irresponsible for the media not to provide him with such evidence. The Attorney-General pointed out that during previous discussions on the matter, it was confirmed that no docket had been submitted to him regarding Akonta Mining, challenging the accuracy of the information circulating in the media.
