The sale of the drill ship belonging to the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) took a dramatic turn when the Attorney General’s Department on Tuesday said it could not trace documents covering the sale.
“We are unable to locate files. We are still looking for the documents,” Mrs Dorothy Afriyie Ansah, Chief State Attorney, told the Judgment Debt Commission in Accra.
Nana Boakye Asafo-Adjaye, Chief Executive Officer of GNPC, said in 1999 Societe Generale (SG) sued the Corporation and the Attorney General’s Department asked to be given all the documents in their possession concerning the case.
He said he could not determine whether all the documents requested were provided leading to the payment of the judgment debt.
Nana Asafo-Adjaye said prior to the payment of the judgment debt, GNPC were using Bindman and Partners as their legal representation in court but the then Attorney General asked that the matter to be handed over to the Attorney General’s Department.
