UK Commission couldn’t prove I acted fraudulently – MP

The former Member of Parliament for the Asunafo South constituency in the Brong Ahafo Region, George Boakye has said the UK High Commissioner has failed to prove that he was indeed involved in any form of visa fraud.

The High Commission accused George Boakye and three other sitting MPs of engaging in various forms of visa related fraud.

Mr Boakye who felt he was being wrongfully accused subsequently wrote to the Commission demanding proof of his culpability.

He has received two separate responses from the High Commission but according to him, there was still no proof of his involvement in any fraud.Mr. Boakye explained to Citi News that the commission has not been also able to prove that he used a diplomatic passport during the visa application process.

“I wrote to them and made them aware that I never used any diplomatic passport; I even sent them a copy of my passport to them. So they wrote back and told me that they never said that I used diplomatic passport and that they’ve not banned me for ten years. Then my lawyer wrote to them again asking them to show where in the visa application process we acted fraudulently and that was the reply we were expecting from them.”

“We got the reply on Tuesday and they didn’t even say anything about it and neither did they say that they’ve rejected our application… I just wanted them to show me where I acted fraudulently and the reply I had from them on Tuesday didn’t even touch and that issue. That was the most important thing. That is what I wanted to know from them,” he added.
