The PNC General-Secretary, Bernard Mornah has said he doubts if parliament could do a better job investigating the 58 million Ghana cedis judgment debt saga than the Economic and Organized Crime Office which was directed by President Mills.
The opposition NPP and its Minority in Parliament insist that EOCO cannot do an independent job because it is supervised by the Attorney-General’s Department;one of the parties involved in the judgment debt saga.
But Mr. Mornah told Citi FM’s Saturday current affairs programme, THE BIG ISSUE that he’d rather EOCO did the investigations than Parliament.
“What is the possibility that parliament will not compromise? This is a matter that borders on economic crime and which institution is more qualified to deal with matters of economic crime than the office [EOCO] that has been designated? Parliament itself passed into an act to institute that office,” he said.
Mr. Mornah opined that the suggestion to give parliament the go-ahead to investigate the Woyome case undermined the authority of the EOCO
