Private Investigation firm, TigerEye, has refuted claims being paraded by a then Secretary to the government’s Inter-Ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining (IMCIM), Charles Cromwell Bissue.
Mr. Bissue is saying a documentary carried by the investigative firm –Galamsey Fraud Part 1 –with audiovisual evidence to authenticate his involvement in galamsey activities and bribe-taking is false. He says it was only a ploy to tarnish his image.
Mr. Bissue has been involved in a series of damage control after the NDC stated he is among persons they will prosecute for galamsey when they next assume power.
In his rounds of defence, the then secretary to the IMCIM says the CID has absolved him of all allegations and claims by the NDC are mere propaganda.
According to a release issued by Anas Aremeyaw Anas’s TigerEye Pi, Mr. Bissue’s claims that the investigative firm approached him for a ransom to drop the piece about him is a falsity.
The Pi firm says Mr. Bissue has asserted the documentary was shown to tarnish his image after failing to give them the sum they demanded.
But the October 6, 2022 release from TigerEye says they adopted the ‘Anas Principle’ on two occasions to pay a bribe to Mr. Bissue to grant them access to mine illegally, whilst his mandate was rather to protect the environment as secretary to the IMCIM.
