ASEPA Files Criminal Complaint Against Rev Kusi Boateng
The Alliance for Social Equity and Public Accountability (ASEPA) has filed a criminal complaint with the Criminal Investigations Department of the Ghana Police Service against the National Cathedral Ghana Executive Council Member of the Board of Trustees, Rev Victor Kusi Boateng, also known as Kwabena Adu Gyamfi.
The CSO in a letter to the CID called for the arrest and prosecution of the pastor citing breaches of Sections 251, 215 and 132 of the Criminal and other Offences Act, 1960 (ACT 29).
This comes on the back of the Member of Parliament for North Tongu Constituency, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa’s accusation that Rev Kusi Boateng has a double identity.
According to Ablakwa, the pastor uses two different names with different Tax Identification Numbers, different dates of birth, different passports, etc.
Ablakwa also said Kwabena Adu Gyamfi is a “criminal creation” of Rev. Victor Kusi-Boateng.
In its complaint, ASEPA said, “we believe that the perpetrated a criminal offence under section 251 of ACT 29 obtained two different passports from the state, two different driver’s licenses from the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority, two different tax identification numbers, two different voter’s IDs by knowingly providing false and conflicting information to public officers to obtain these documents”.
It also noted that Rev Kusi Boateng violated Section 251 of the Criminal and other Offences Act when he filed a suit on February 2, 2023, and “represented himself to the court of Ghana as Kwabena Adu Gyamfi alias Victor Kusi Boateng relying on two different identities he had previously acquired through fraud and deception of public officers working in various offices of state responsible for such identifications”.
Finally, it said, “All national Identifications belong to the State and are acquired through procedures and requirements specified by law, the misrepresentation and personation by the respondent to obtain the consent of national officers to part with the ownership of these identification ls was in serious breach of Section 132 of ACT 29 relative to the Offense of Defrauding by pretences.”
The CSO, therefore, wants the immediate arrest of the pastor and his subsequent prosecution for the alleged offences.
