5 Immigration Officers Face Interdiction
The Ghana Immigration Service (GIS) has interdicted five of its officers.
Comptroller-General of GIS, Kwame Asuah-Takyi, made this known in a statement dated July 9, 2020.
According to the statement, the interdicted officers include Assistant Inspector Isaac Ahiafor Agbeyenyega, Assistant Inspector Sarah Adubea, ICO Juliana Anning, ICO Jennifer Owusu and R.O. Joyce Nketia.
The statement says their interdictions take immediate effect.
According to the statement, “it is consequent to their alleged involvement in the facilitation of illegal entities of foreign nationals through unapproved routes in the Aflao Sector Command, acts which constitute offences under Section 52 (1) of the Immigration Act, 2000 (Act 573); and also in breach of the President’s directives on border closure.”
The statement indicated that while on interdiction, they will be entitled to two-third of their salaries.
