Investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas has released the video for his latest investigative work on illegal mining known locally as “Galamsey”.
So far, we have been informed through a source that a presidential staffer and Secretary to the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining (IMCIM), Mr. Charles Cromwell Bissue has been fingered in the new exposée.
Mr. Bissue is captured in a secretly recorded video receiving bundles of cash to facilitate the speedy ‘clearance’ of a mining company in order that it can begin mining as soon as possible.
He was also heard in the video instructing his subordinates over the phone to “fast track” the processing of the company’s documents.
Several others connected to the work of the IMCIM, otherwise known as the Presidential Committee on Environment and Natural Resources, are seen in the video playing “facilitating” roles at negotiated fees.
Watch the video:
The video would be premiered on major television stations tonight at 10:00pm as shared on the Facebook wall of the man behind the mask.
