The Public Accounts Committee probes Judicial Service unaccounted monies across the country.
Officials from the Judicial Service were queried on unaccounted deposit of 46,650 euros at Tema High Court and their failure to present Bank Statements for the confirmation of revenue lodged amounting to GH¢357,940 to the Auditors.
Another infraction uncovered was the ineffective control of Value Books at Weija District Magistrate Court which irregularities were attributed to Management’s failure to supervise the activities of the Registrar.
The officials were also cited for excess retention of Internally Generated Funds totalling GH¢ 285,250 at Offinso District and Tarkwa High Courts and their failure to charge interest on delayed Transfer of Revenue by Zenith Bank to the tune of GH¢3,854,718.07.
Responding to the issue, the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) Chairman Mr. James Klutse Avedzi said the Committee will submit its recommendations to Parliament and recommend sanctions for MDAs that failed to account for public funds and public officials that refuse to account for public funds at their disposal for them to be shown the way out of office.
He said one of the major responsibilities of the PAC is to hold the MDAs to account since whoever is given the responsibility and the trust of running any agency with public funds must be accountable to Parliament on behalf of the people.
The Committee, he emphasized, will insist that any public servant or civil servant that is given public funds for public good and has questions to answer and refuse to answer satisfactorily should have no business being in government.
