EOCO probes five former officials of SNNIT

The Economic and Organised Crime Office [EOCO] is investigating five former officials of the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) for various acts of malfeasance over the years.

Board Chairman of SSNIT, Kwame Addo Kufuor, said aside the five former officials, 15 more officers have also been invited to assist with investigations into corrupt activities at the pension scheme.

“From my conversations, five people are being investigated and about 15 have been called as witnesses, but five are being investigated.”

Mr Kufuor, who failed to provide details of the exact nature of the investigation, made this known at the signing of an audit agreement between the pension scheme and PricewaterhouseCoopers to review the financial records of the Trust in Accra on Tuesday, August 22.
