The suspended CEO of the Public Procurement Authority, Adjenim Boateng Adjei has returned to the Office of the Special Prosecutor for the second day of interrogation.
He is being questioned along with his brother-in-law and co-director of Talent Discovery Company Ltd (TDL), Francis Arhin.
The two were indicted in an investigative piece by freelance journalist, Manasseh Azure Awuni. They were granted bail on Thursday by investigators of the Special Prosecutor after having been formally charged.
The office is investigating Mr. Adjenim Adjei over allegations of illegally selling government contracts.
President Akufo-Addo suspended Mr Adjei last week after a documentary by journalist, Manasseh Azure Awuni revealed that he was allegedly engaged in selling government contracts.
In the documentary, a company, owned by Mr. Adjenim Adjei was found to be getting many government contracts through restrictive tendering and selling those contracts to others for profit
Citi News Umaru Sanda Amadu who was at the office of the Special Prosecutor reported that the sessions were held behind closed doors.
The Office of the Special Prosecutor, according to some correspondence sighted by Citi News had already been investigating Mr. Adjenim Adjei prior to the airing of the documentary and the subsequent directive from the Presidency that the embattled official is suspended.
The President also referred him to the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) because of conflict of interest claims.
