The Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) has been sued by the Former Commissioner of Customs Division at the Ghana Revenue Authority, Col Kwadwo Damoah (Rtd) and a former Deputy Commissioner of the Division, Joseph Adu Kyei, over the Labianca report.
They are asking the court to dismiss the report on the activities of Labianca Company.
Col. Kwadwo Damoah, (RTD) earlier accused the OSP of attempting to bring him down with the report.
This was after the OSP recovered over GHC1 million GHC1,074, 627.15) from Labianca Foods in unpaid import duties, a scandal involving a company belong to a Council of State member.
In his view, the report is ‘hollow and actuated by malice’.
The OSP also called for wider investigations into Customs Division of the GRA and demanded for a copy of Integrity plans to prevent corruption.
The OSP investigated alleged corruption and corruption related offences in the context of evasion and valuation of duties on frozen and processed food products imported into Ghana between 2017-2021.
The case, according to the OSP involved some high-ranking officials of the Customs Division of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA).
In its report on the investigations, the OSP said “Labianca Company Limited commenced operations in 2014 and it is wholly owned and controlled by Ms. Asomah-Hinneh on all practical and legal considerations. The company, it appears, imports about two hundred (200) forty (40) footer shipping containers of frozen chicken parts, fish, pork and fries monthly primarily from Europe and the United States of America. It enjoys a substantial market share in the imported frozen foods industry
