Gov’t to release CMS fire report today
Government will on Friday release its official position on the investigations into the fire that gutted the Central Medical Stores in Tema.
Attorney General & Minister for Justice, Marietta Brew Appiah-Opong, will issue the government statement following the approval of President John Dramani Mahama.
The investigative report into the fire which occurred in January last year states among others that the fire was a case of arson.
The Central Medical Store is where the country’s medical equipment and drugs are stored for onward distribution across the regions.
Over two hundred million cedis worth of drugs and equipment were destroyed in Tema which nearly crippled healthcare delivery.
Before the fire, the then Health Minister Dr. Kwaku Agyeman-Mensah had initiated investigations into allegations of corrupt practices at the store.
