EOCO To Audit The Lifestyle Of Celebrities

Following the 'disgrace' of socialite Hajia4Reall, the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) has announced its intention to inspect the lifestyles of Ghanaian celebrities.

This ruling comes after Mona Montrage, a musician and social media celebrity, pleaded guilty to a $2 million romance scam.

Concerns have been made about Ghanaian authorities' claimed inability to prevent the growth of illicit wealth.

Edward Cudjoe, the head of EOCO's administration and investigations, indicated that plans were in place to begin lifestyle audits for persons with unexplained riches.

He stressed that EOCO intends to break from current legislation, which requires that an individual be the subject of an investigation before being questioned about the source of their riches.

"We are leading the battle on our own, proposing amendments to the law to comply with international standards. This ensures that any financial deficits are supported by your revenue. Any inequalities must be clarified to law enforcement, and the individual bears the duty of proving the provenance of such resources," he said.
