A Ghanaian national working with the British Embassy in Accra has been sacked over visa fraud allegations.

The identity of the suspect is yet to be made public.

Jon Benjamin, The British High Commissioner, wrote  on his twitter handle yesterday, Thursday February 26: "Today we dismissed a Ghanaian employee of the British High Commission for gross misconduct related to visa fraud”.

The Commission later released a statement saying: “Though such cases are extremely rare, it takes allegations against any of its staff extremely seriously and will always take the strongest possible action. “This issue came to light precisely because of the strong internal audit and control mechanisms we have in place to monitor our entire visa operation.”
