Parliament must probe involvement of MPs in galamsey, says Jantuah

The private legal practitioner wants Parliament to establish a commission to fish out MPs involved in the galamsey menace

Kwame Jantuah, a private legal practitioner has suggested to Parliament to establish a commission to probe the involvement of Members of Parliament in illegal mining, also known as galamsey.

It follows allegations by former minister and chairman of the dissolved Inter-Ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining (IMCIM), Prof Frimpong-Boateng in a 37-page report to President Akufo-Addo, accusing some government officials of plotting to bring him down over the fight against illegal mining.

The report made several allegations against some government and political party officials who allegedly made various attempts to thwart his efforts in clamping down on illegal mining in the country.

Speaking on Asaase 99.5 Accra’s news analysis show, The Forum, on Saturday (29 April), Jantuah called for the depoliticisation of the fight against galamsey

“Parliament should set up a commission to fish out every politician and MP involved in galamsey. Are they not involved in galamsey? Do we not know some of them? Who has said anything about it?”

The issues in this report are real and true, and that’s what we should be looking at; not looking at petty things and personal grievances,” Jantuah said.
