The Customs Division may commence auction sales of vehicles and other goods from Monday (12 September 2022), the Office of the Special Prosecutor has said.
This follows an earlier directive by the Special Prosecutor for the Custom Division of the GRA to halt auction sales.
On 19 August 2022, the Special Prosecutor directed the commissioner of the Customs Division of the Ghana Revenue Authority to halt and discontinue all auction sales in aid of facilitating investigation into suspected corruption and corruption-related offences in respect of auction sales of vehicles and other goods by the Customs Division between 1 July 2016 and 15 August 2022.
But in a statement issued on Monday (12 September), Special Prosecutor has now given the green light for auction sales.
“The Customs Division may commence auction sales of vehicles and other goods from Monday 12 September 2022.”
“The auction sales should be conducted strictly in accordance with legal requirement, especially the provisions of the Customs Act, 2015 (Act 891),” the statement added.
