The Auditor-General, Daniel Domelevo, has urged the High Court’s Human Rights Division to declare an on-going Economic and Organised Crimes Office (EOCO) investigation of the Audit Service over allegations of procurement breaches as wrongful and illegal.
An application filed by Mr Daniel Domelovo on Wednesday which has escalated his feud with EOCO also urged the court to enforce his fundamental human rights in articles 23 and 33 of Ghana’s constitution.
Represented by Sory@Law, Mr Domelovo asked the court to make a declaration that EOCO has no statutory mandate to investigate the Audit Service for any breaches under the Procurement Act 2003, (Act 663).
Mr Domelevo is resisting the EOCO attempt to investigate his office following a petition from a private citizen who has alleged there has been a breach of Act 663 in the Procurement law in relation to the purchase of vehicles worth almost GH¢6.2 million for the Audit Service.
